Rihanna has today released the music video for her new song Sledgehammer, which will be the theme song for Star Trek Beyond.

Rihanna was “honoured” to be asked to record this song she said in the released video buy Paramount.

She explains that Star Trek “has been a part of me since my childhood” and that it’s “never left me.” So, the decision to record “Sledgehammer” was entirely “automatic.”  As for the song itself, it “needed to be big, impactful, very emotional, dramatic and haunting… All at the same time.”
