Rihanna’s ‘Sledgehammer’ Debuts on the Latest Star Trek Beyond Trailer, Because in Space, Everyone Can Hear You Croon


Don't ask us why, but it always seemed like Rihanna would be more of a Deep Space Nine gal than a fan of the Star Trek reboots (you just know she has opinions about wormholes), but either way, the pop star signed on to go where Diane Warren has gone before and perform a new single for Star Trek Beyond. Featured in a new trailer for the latest Trek film today, "Sledgehammer" was written by Sia and it pushes Rihanna into some of her more ambitious vocal work in recent memory. Sadly, Rihanna herself will not appear in Beyond, but she has signed on for a role in Luc Besson's Valerian, so fear not, the crazy space outfits are coming soon.
