  • Rihanna Drive

    “One, two, one, two/some dreams stay dreams, some dreams come true!” The hook on Nas’ stellar cut, “Still Dreaming,” featuring Kanye West and Chrisette Michele is what instantly came to mind while writing this story. Why you might ask? Well, Rihanna was recently honored with her very own street and only a select few of historical figures in the entertainment industry have received this particular accolade. 

    Coined, “Rihanna Drive,” the wild, wild, wild songstress’ commemorative road—formerly known as Westbury New Road—is located in the town of St. Michael in Barbados. The unveiling ceremony of RiRi's street took place on November 30th, the same day as Barbado's Independence day.

    Furthermore, 'Rihanna Drive' holds a plaque which includes the superstar crooner's personal statement: "Welcome to Rihanna Drive...My home.  My whole life was shaped on this very road.  I was just a little island girl riding bikes, running around barefoot and flying kites in the cemetery, but I had BIG dreams.  Dreams that were born and realized here," she states.  Damn, must be nice to milly rock on your own block!

    As I always say on here, "all is possible," so I hope that all of you are doing your best to materialize your wildest desires.
