Rihanna knows that all the world wants for Christmas is her long-awaited ninth album. She may not be quite ready to put that under the tree, but in the meantime she's still spreading holiday cheer in other ways.
This week, while home in Barbados for the holidays, RiRi surprised an unsuspecting fan at a petrol station.
In a video posted to Twitter, Rihanna and the fan - who are both wearing face masks - can be seen laughing together. 'Herself, in person, Rihanna,' the fan announces. A recently-mulleted Rihanna then responds, 'At a random gas station. We're not even buying gas. We're not even driving.'
In the clip the man then proceeds to thank the music mogul for making his holidays brighter. 'One in a million. My Christmas just got made merry,' he says, to which Rihanna exclaims, 'Barbados!'

Rihanna was spotted first arriving in her home country of Barbados last Wednesday (December 16).
She resided there from birth up until she was musically discovered in 2003 by songwriter and record producer Evan Rogers, who invited her to the United States to record demo tapes.
The singer was named an Ambassador Extraordinary and Plenipotentiary of Barbados in 2018 to promote education and tourism to the island nation.
