RiRi is now in Barbados to visit her family and close friends. On Friday (November 21), she spent time with Majesty, enjoyed the sunset and even visited the Clara Brathwaite Centre for Oncology and Nuclear Medicine. Read more about it via Barbados’ Nation News below and don’t miss all photos after the jump.

Mega star Rihanna, on a working visit to Barbados, made a stop at the Queen Elizabeth Hospital yesterday as she checked in on a centre dedicated to her grandmother’s memory.

The 26-year-old Grammy winner and her mother, Monica Fenty, arrived after 10 a.m. to visit the Clara Brathwaite Centre for Oncology and Nuclear Medicine for an update on the facility named after Rihanna’s beloved “Gran Gran Dolly”, who succumbed to cancer two years ago.

Ri-Ri personally donated funds to establish the existing centre and purchased the facility’s first modern radiotherapy machine which was in use yesterday. She stopped to chat with the cancer patient using the machinery and reports are that she also saw where the area is being retrofitted for another piece of equipment she is set to donate.

Rihanna becomes the first act to score as many as eight No. 1s from one album in the history of Billboard’s Dance Club Songs chart, as “Consideration,” featuring SZA, rises 2-1 on the list dated Feb. 24. The song is the unprecedented eighth topper on the tally from Rihanna’s 2016 album, ANTI.

“Consideration,” Rihanna’s first Dance Club Songs No. 1 since “Desperado” in October, also grants SZA her first No. 1 on the ranking.

The run of eight Dance Club Songs No. 1s from ANTI began on April 23, 2016, with the coronation of “Work,” featuring Drake. During the set’s span of leaders, she’s added two No. 1s not on the set: “This Is What You Came For,” by Calvin Harris featuring Rihanna, which posted a two-week reign on July 9 and July 16, 2016, and “Wild Thoughts,” by DJ Khaled featuring Rihanna and Bryson Tiller, which topped the Aug. 26, 2017-dated chart.

With “Consideration,” Rihanna breaks the record for most No. 1 songs from a single album on Dance Club Songs. Katy Perry previously held the mark, as she scored seven leaders from Teenage Dream in 2010-12.

N.E.R.D. and Rihanna’s “Lemon” darts 4-1 on Billboard’s Rhythmic Songs airplay chart (dated Feb. 10) to command the list for the first time. The collaboration leaps to the top with an 8 percent hike in plays in the week ending Feb. 4, according to Nielsen Music.

With “Lemon,” N.E.R.D. squeezes out its first trip to the summit with its first entry on the chart.

Rihanna logs her 17th No. 1 on Rhythmic Songs, extending her mark for the most among women and pulling within two chart-toppers of tying Drake’s record of 19.
