According to earlier reports, Se7en's American debut single GIRLS (featuring Lil' Kim) was supposed to be included on his new Korean mini-album, Digital Bounce, but for unknown reasons Se7en's label YG Entertainment decided not to put it on the album. The promotional track Better Together does, however, make reference to GIRLS with the lyric "Girls I do adore".

Lil’ Kim Unveils Collaborations with Dr. Dre and Keri Hilson
Lil’ Kim has been one busy bee lately. The pint-sized rapper, who recently turned 35, reveals that she has been working on her next album and collaborating with Dr. Dre and Keri Hilson.
“I’m doing a collaboration with Keri Hilson. I’m so excited,” the Queen Bee told Hollywood.tv of the Polow Da Don production. “This is for her album though, so you might be hearing that song really soon.”
Kim also dropped another bombshell, sharing that she has recorded for what is arguably the most anticipated and pushed back album of the decade. “I’m on Dr. Dre’s Detox album. I’m really excited about that one!” she exclaimed.
There are reports that she is signing with Jay-Z’s Roc Nation label, however, she would not confirm if a deal had been finalized, saying, “Jay-Z’s awesome and him and I have collaborated numerous times, and we’ve always talked about how great it would be when we team up together, so that’s just a wonderful place to be for any artist and especially for me.”
While no date has been set for her next studio album, Kim plans to drop some singles soon. Timbaland, Detail, and Wyclef Jean, who contributed five songs, are among her collaborators. (source: rap-up.com)
This week, Lil' Kim turned 35. And, as always, she's still making the scene with everything she does – 15 years after making an indelible mark on the hardcore hip-hop scene with her former group, Junior M.A.F.I.A.
Since then, the Brooklyn native -- legally known as Kimberly Denise Jones – has been to hell and back with endless drama, including the brutal murder of her lover and mentor The Notorious B.I.G., a high-profile prison bid, lawsuits, record company drama, TV stints and numerous rap beefs.
We caught up with the Grammy Award-winning rap diva, who said she had a lot to get off her chest. Below are excerpts of the conversation.
BV: What have you been up to?
LK: "Well, right now I'm currently on my promo tour, which I'm ecstatic about. And it's been wonderful. My fans are the best in the world! I don't want to be any other celebrity right now. I love my fans. I'm looking to release a single [this month], because I got a lot of songs that I worked on. I've been in the studio with Dr. Dre. I'm going to be on his 'Detox' album. It's 'Hardcore' Lil Kim. It's one of those records that, even if it doesn't become a single, it will always be in your playlist. Dr. Dre in return is going to do some stuff for my album. I've been in the studio with Timbaland, too."
BV: You've done 'Dancing With the Stars,' which was a major move for you. This is all after your incarceration, when you picked up the pieces. How did you do it?
LK: "Well, for me it was nobody but God. I can't even take credit for that. If I didn't have him, I wouldn't even be here with all the things I went through. But he lets me know that he's real, and I'm supposed to be here because of him."
