BTA Chairman, Dr. Hudson Husbands with Bajan superstar Rihanna, at the 2005 Mercedes Benz Bridgehampton Polo Day

The Barbados Tourism Authority (BTA) has incorporated local rising star, Rihanna, in its overseas advertising campaigns in the USA market. According to BTA Vice President for the Americas, Bill Silvermintz, Rihanna has been a dream to work with.


Rihanna has been taking the world by storm following her seemingly overnight rise to stardom and has successfully brought several aspects of her Barbadian life in her music videos. In addition she showcased the island by use of Barbadian costumes and flags at her performance at the MTV Awards pre-show in Miami last year.

What is very important is that she has not charged for her appearances in these ads & only because she loves her country, said Silvermintz. And she has gone way above and beyond t he call of duty, even with her hectic schedule; she never complains.

She just represents her country so well. The advertisements featured here show her posing on local beaches and hotels and are being run in several established print magazines across the US.
