Global pop star Rihanna is being backed by a Yamaha Motif XS user.

Hannah Vasanth plays both the Yamaha Motif XS6 and XS8 and has forged a career as a regular contributor to the star's music.

Vasanth and her Yamaha equipment features on Rihanna's latest smash hit, Love The Way You Lie, which is a collaboration with rapper Eminem.

"Not content with a huge world tour this summer (machine guns, inflatable outfits, a pink tank!) Rihanna has continued to release track after track off her album Rated R," the musical instrument manufacturer's website explained.

In a recent article on the AOL Radio blog, Rihanna's song Rude Boy from the Rated R record was named as the best track of 2010 so far.

It beat off competition from the likes of Lady Gaga, Black Eyed Peas, Katy Perry and Taio Cruz to claim the top spot in the eyes of columnist Sara Anderson.
