Taeyang continues to make headlines, weeks after the release of his most recent album "Rise."

The Big Bang member has been chosen to be a model for Calvin Klein's unisex fragrance, CK ONE.

Calvin Klein reportedly mixed a bit of their traditional style along with the different variations of new and upcoming musicians and models. Taeyang worked with well-known artists and models, including Say Lou Lou, Kelela, Evian Christ, Petra Collins and others.

The "Eyes, Nose, Lips" singer received a considerable amount of attention as he was the only Korean artist chosen to be a part of the project.

Taeyang posted a photo along with a message about his appearance in the new campaign online.

The R&B singer has recently been promoting his new album and thanking fans for their ongoing support.

Taeyang met with fans at a Hi-touch meeting event at Seoul's Time Square on June 29, where the dancer sang his hit single along with the a cappella versions of several of the other tracks on his album.

"Rise" is the second full-length album from Taeyang, according to Billboard. The album landed at No. 112 on the Billboard 200 soon after its release, becoming the third highest-charting K-pop album on America's definitive albums ranking, according to the music magazine.

"Rise" followed close behind 2NE1's "Crush" and Girls' Generation's "Mr. Mr." EP.

During Taeyang's recent interview with Noonchi, the Korean sensation shared the changes in his music style and how he felt about being compared to American artists.

"Personally, I feel like I'm still following that lineage of R&B music. But I don't have a specific set of rules for the type of music I make. Of course, what I love and like is very clear. The artists I'm inspired by fall in that lane, so people could categorize my sound as similar to that of an Usher or an Omarion. But just because I do R&B-style of music, I don't feel obliged to do just that," stated Taeyang.
