The “S&M" singer, who was born on the Caribbean island, wants the world to taste the spirit and hospitality of her fellow Barbadians. She will join the country's tourism authority in spearheading the initiative to attract tourists to the country.

I want each and every visitor to this beautiful island to experience what makes this destination different from all others and that is the spirit and warmth of my fellow Barbadians," Contactmusic quoted the singer as saying.
Rihanna will begin her duties as a tourism ambassador by bringing her 'Loud' tour to her hometown Bridgetown in August. “We are proud to announce that musical sensation and social phenomenon Rihanna has partnered with the Barbados Tourism Authority as an exclusive promotional partner for three years.
