This November, Westbury New Road in Barbados will officially become Rihanna Drive.

The Ministry of Tourism for the Caribbean country revealed the news in a newly released statement, according to Nation News.

“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,” the statement read.

As part of her Clara Lionel Foundation, Rihanna has given back heavily to her home-country. The singer, who was named Harvard University’s Humanitarian of the Year in February, also donated $1.75 million to Barbados’ Queen Elizabeth Hospital in 2012.

RiRi also created the Clara and Lionel Foundation Scholarship Program for students attending college in the United States from Barbados and other Caribbean countries.

Rihanna and Prime Minister Freundel Stuart are scheduled to unveil the street sign for Rihanna Drive on November 30.
