Back in February, James travelled to the US for his recording sessions.
In an interview with CNN Philippines in March, James further detailed his travel to the US.

He released his first international collaboration with GOT7’s Jay B and ØZI for "Hello 2.0 (Legends Only)" in March this year.
In an interview with FAULT Magazine in March, James said that his international label Transparent Arts made the said collaboration possible.
"I owe it to my management, Transparent Arts, for orchestrating the whole collaboration, remixing the song, and hooking me up with Jay B and ØZI who both did a legendary job on the new track," he said in the February interview.
In July, James visited South Korea, where he was spotted with several K-Pop idols. He also dropped by the headquarters of some music labels in South Korea.
