According to a source, the 25-year-old star bought the house after renting it to for her family the previous year, the New York Post reported.
The 'Umbrella' hit-maker bought the villa, as she likes spending time with her family when she returns every year for the holidays.
The source added that she plans to spend more time in Barbados with her mother, Monica Braithwaite and grandfather, Lionel Braithwaite.
The 25-year-old singer purchased the 10,000 square-foot villa near the beach and close to the famous five-star Sandy Lane Hotel.
The villa boasts five bedrooms and baths, grand lobby with spiral staircase, pool, private gym and 24-hour security service operated by the Sandy Lane Hotel staff.
