The street Rihanna grew up on in Barbados is officially changing its name to honor their most famous former resident.

Westbury New Road in St. Michael will be renamed to Rihanna Drive during the celebration of Barbados Independence Day.

The Barbados Ministry of Tourism said, "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 honour of Barbadian superstar Ms. Robyn Rihanna Fenty who grew up in Westbury New Road."
