J Balvin attends the Univision's 13th Edition Of Premios Juventud Youth Awards at Bank United Center on July 14, 2016 in Miami. 

From the stage to the runway. J Balvin will serve as one of the celebrity ambassadors for the annual New York Fashion Week: Men's during its upcoming season (Jan. 30 to Feb. 2). 

The Colombian chart-topping reggaetonero becomes the first Latin artist to be selected by The Council of Fashion Designers of America (CFDA) as an ambassador. 

"I’m honored and thankful to be partnering with the prestigious CFDA as one of the men's wear ambassadors for fashion week. My interest in fashion is only matched by my love for music and I'm blessed to be given an opportunity to learn about some of my favorite designers from a firsthand look at their latest collections," Balvin says in a statement. 

It won't be the first time Balvin attends the high-end fashion event. In 2016, he was spotted at the Rochambeau Spring Summer 2017 and later at the "Chanel Collection des Metiers d'Art 2016/17: Paris Cosmopolite" along with another fashion insider, Pharrell

Balvin continues: "I look forward to sharing my behind the scenes access with my fans across the word to help push the culture forward. Let's go!"
