Rihanna never sleeps. Although many fans have complained that we don’t see the new album since 2016 Anti, looks like Rihanna is not busy. She became one of the only female billionaires in the world this year, due to the success of her respective lines Fenty Beauty and Savage Fenty, and she even dipped her toes back into the musical game a bit with a huge vinyl collection of all her old works.
But despite all she has achieved in her career, part of Riri’s heart will also lie in her hometown of Barbados. She’s always kept her roots there, going back for different festivals every year and make sure everyone knows she doesn’t forget where she comes from. Well, she’s also returning to Barbados tonight to help celebrate a very historic moment in the country’s history: officially becoming a republic. You see, in the past, Barbados was once a royal colony, but they chose to be self-governing. But Barbados will remain part of a larger commonwealth, despite the newly established independence.
Catch a glimpse of Rihanna’s appearance at the ceremony below and follow her own thoughts on the transition, which will likely hit social media over the next few days.
