The street formerly known as Westbury New Road in Barbados' St. Michael parish will now be called "Rihanna Drive."

Barbado's Ministry of Tourism said the decision was made after Westbury New Road had become a growing tourist attraction for fans of the singer seeking a glimpse of her Barbadian roots.

"Additionally, it was thought necessary to highlight the many achievements of the Grammy Award-winning singer, entrepreneur and philanthropist," the government said in a statement.
