Say hello to a new Rihanna song! One month ahead of the July 22 release of ‘Star Trek Beyond,’ RiRi dropped her song for the movie’s soundtrack titled ‘Sledgehammer,’ and it’s absolutely amazing. Listen to the track in the background of a brand new trailer right here!
Who knew Rihanna was going to be part of the latest Star Trek movie? The 28-year-old singer released her contribution to Star Trek Beyond on June 27, which is a song called “Sledgehammer.” Between Star Trek and RiRi, of course the song is incredible!
The first snippet of the track came out with a brand new Star Trek trailer, and RiRi sounds absolutely incredible, hitting high notes we didn’t even know she was capable of! The track is a perfectly intense tune for the movie, and fits in perfectly with the thrilling trailer.
Rihanna had teased the track on social media with a neat video that surely had Trekkies freaking out — but now that fans have actually heard more of the song, they’re probably going even crazier!
Star Trek fans might be even more excited about the track because it’s a bit of a light in the dark for die-hard Trekkies. The release of “Sledgehammer” comes just one week after the tragic death of Anton Yelchin, who was known for playing Pavel Chekov in the reboot films. He passed away in a freak Jeep accident on June 19, leaving many fans devastated. But Rihanna’s song is a great reminder that Star Trek Beyond will be an amazing way to remember the late Anton!
Aside from Rihanna, it’s unclear if any other superstar will be contributing a song to the movie’s soundtrack. The CD is set to be released one week after the movie on July 29.
