Rihanna sure knows how to put her island on the map.

The Bajan beauty has unveiled her the new ad campaign for Barbados Tourism, which she shot in her homeland this summer.

The 24-year old songstress, who signed a three-year contract with Barbados Tourist Authority to be the official face of the Caribbean island, shared the final product on her Instagram.

In the adverts, the “Diamonds” crooner is seen flaunting her beach bod in a colorful swimsuit with inspiration phrases like, “The biggest risk is not taking one” inscribed on the shots.

During her time shooting the ads, RiRi also found some time to tour pal Oprah Winfrey around her childhood haunts.

The two were spotted driving around the singer’s old neighborhood before Rihanna sat down with the talk show host for a candid, one-on-one interview. In the emotional sit-down, Rihanna famously opened up about her true feelings for ex-boyfriend Chris Brown, confessing that he “was the love of [her] life.”

“It’s awkward because I still love him,” she said of Brown, who is currently still on probation after assaulting her at a 2009 pre-Grammy Party. “My stomach drops, and I have to maintain this poker face and not let it get to the outer part of me.”

“We have maintained a very close friendship ever since the restraining order was dropped,” she added.

Since the interview, Rihanna and Brown have seemingly rekindled their romance. The on-again, off-again couple were last seen at the Los Angeles’ GreyStone Manor for a Halloween bash.

“Rihanna and Chris were dancing and drinking the entire night,” an eyewitness told Celebuzz exclusively. “She wasn’t even looking at any other guys but Chris.”
