As if we haven’t been inspired by BGR! ROCK STAR honoree Rihanna enough this year, she will now have the street on which she grew up named after her.
From becoming the first artist to have five No. 1s on the Billboard Dance Club Songs chart, speaking out against the injustices towards Cyntoia Brown, to Fenty Beauty being valued at $72 million after one month, RiRi is now being recognized by her very own hometown.
On November 30, 2017 Rihanna joined Prime Minister Freundel Stuart for a two-hour ceremony that included the unveiling of Rihanna Drive.
According to the Nation News, the Ministry of Tourism announced that Westbury New Road located in St. Michael, where the singer grew up was renamed Rihanna Drive.
“The Government of Barbados will on Independence Day, Thursday 30th November, 2017 officially change the name of Westbury New Road located in St. Michael to Rihanna Drive in honor of Barbadian superstar Ms. Robyn Rihanna Fenty who grew up in Westbury New Road.” – The Barbados Ministry of Tourism statement via Nation News.
