At the same time, BTS' Jungkook took home Best Dance Performance Male Solo and Best Collaboration at the 2023 MAMA Awards with Seven (feat. Latto) from the album.

At the 2024 Circle Chart Music Awards, he grabbed Artist Of The Year - Global Streaming for Seven (ft. Latto) - Explicit Version and Artist Of The Year - Digital for Seven (ft.
