Rihanna to have Barbados street named after her

Right in the neighborhood where she grew up.

Over the last few years, Rihanna has made sure to honor her homeland of Barbados: she's charitably built a breast cancer diagnosis and treatment facility there, launched a college scholarship program for its students who are continuing education in America, and designed a jewelry collection inspired by the island.

Now, she'll be celebrated in return. According to Nation News, the Ministry of Tourism announced that Westbury New Road located in St. Michael, where the singer grew up, will be renamed Rihanna Drive.

The honor will go into effect on their Independence Day, November 30.
