Last January 5, 2018, phenomenal loveteam and real-life sweethearts JaDine had a press con for their upcoming REVOLution, that will be taking place in the Smart Araneta Coliseum this February 9, 2018. The couple dished that everyone will be seeing more of their individual musicality and passion in this concert, unlike their previous ones that were more inclined with their movies and tv shows. James said that unlike their previous concerts where they performed mostly covers, this time they are showing more of their original songs.

James also shared during the press con that he writes his lyrics and makes his music on his own time, explaining the “lack” of his appearances the past year as he was more focused on making his album. He expressed how it was hard to have his own label, though it was fulfilling to have full liberty and control for his music. As for his song-writing process, he says he starts listening to a beat and tries to sing lyrics he wrote along with the tune.
