SE7EN is currently in America, preparing for U.S. debut for 2008. During March 2007, SE7EN's unreleased single, "This is My Year" featuring Fabolous was leaked on MySpace and YouTube. After this incident, this caused some changes and it was decided to create a debut album instead. SE7EN has worked with Amerie and is featured on an additional version of her song 'Take Control.' It can be found on Asian editions of her 3rd album Because I Love It.

Mark Shimmel (CEO of LaFace Records) is helping SE7EN with his U.S. debut along with Rich Harrison and Noise Trip who will produce his American album.

In 2014, SE7EN enlisted for his mandatory military service leaving his expired contract with YG Entertainment seemingly up in the air. It wasn't until two months after his army discharge in December that it was confirmed that YG and SE7EN had agreed to not renew the contract.
