Rihanna has been chosen to be the face of Barbados, and the "Rude Boy" singer didn't disappoint in the new campaign!
"Rihanna has signed a three year contract with the Barbados Tourist Authority (BTA) to promote the island. According to BTA chairman Adrian Elcock, production of the promotional campaign is expected to begin soon and will be launched in September, in time for the winter tourist season," the Barbados Free Press reports.
