A video on Twitter shows the excited fan taking a video with the “Kiss it Better” singer. Both the fan and Rihanna are wearing masks, and Rihanna explains that she is “at a random gas station, we’re not even buying gas. We’re not even driving.”

No matter how or why Rihanna found herself at the gas station, she surely made this fan’s day. The fan ends the video saying “One in a million, my Christmas just got made early,” and referred to the Bajan beauty as “the master herself.”

Before the end of the video, Rihanna exclaims, “Barbados!”

According to Page Six, the singer arrived on the island last week “via private jet, presumably for the holidays.”

In 2020, Rihanna launched Fenty Skin, her official skincare line with a campaign featuring Lil Nas X, Tommy Genesis, and A$AP Rocky. Earlier this month, People reported that Rihanna is “very happy” with her new relationship with Rocky and they have reportedly been “inseparable” since their romance leaked to the public.
