The 29-year-old singer's childhood home now sits on Rihanna Drive.

The people of Barbados can now take a walk down Rihanna Drive. 

The 29-year-old singer was honored in Bridgetown, Barbados, on Thursday, as the street she grew up on as a child was renamed after her. 

RiRi couldn't have looked more stunning -- or proud -- in an off-the-shoulder yellow Hellessy shirt dress at the ceremony. Officials announced last month that they were changing the name of Westbury New Road in Barbados' capital as a tribute to the GRAMMY winner.

Rihanna took to Instagram to celebrate the occasion, sharing a pic of her new street sign. 

"On any block," she captioned the pic, before reflecting on her childhood in Barbados.

"A day my people and I will never forget!" she began a touching essay about the memories she shared with her neighbors and family on the street. "WESTBURY is more than a community, we're family!!! Thank you for all that you've poured into my life and the woman I am! It takes a village, and I'm glad my village was you!!!! To God be the Glory!!!! #RiRiDrive." 

From her hit songs, to her fashion and beauty lines, to her acting roles, Rihanna has given Barbados a lot to be proud of. See more on the singer in the video below.
