The Barbados Tourism Authority in a release today announced that the singer had signed a multi-year deal with the BTA to exclusively promote her hometown island of Barbados as a tourist destination. 
The three-year partnership officially kicks off in Barbados on August 5, 2011 with a full-length concert of her current “Loud” tour produced by the BTA and Roc Nation, stated the release.
“Barbados is a place like no other and one of the reasons for this is the spirit and national pride of our people,” said Rihanna.  “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.”
As an ambassador for Barbados, over the next three years, Rihanna will exclusively promote this country through advertising campaigns, promotional appearances and via her social media presence.
