When I was recently contacted by R Jay’s promotional relations company to do a feature story on R Jay, it was like any other email I would receive asking me to review music or to do a feature story on an upcoming or unknown artist. But, when I listen to his new touching music video “One Day At A Time”, I was very impressed.
As “Scope Magazine” said, R Jay has “voice, presence, appeal and that he has it all”. R Jay is a very talented and dynamic singer/songwriter and producer. To be able to make a soul-filled multi-genre song with a variety of range is pretty crafty. So, when I was asked to consider it for a future feature in BackBeat R&B, I was honored. R Jay is ready to share his voice and talent with the world and jump into the music ring as well as prove himself as a unique artist who is committed to making his dream come true.
