Rihanna decides to lend her vocals for the upcoming Star Trek Beyond film. To build up the hype for the new movie, they decide to release the soundtrack’s first single, “Sledgehammer”. The track is written by Sia, who contributed to numerous movie soundtracks recently and was the writer behind Rihanna‘s No. 1 2012 smash hit, “Diamonds”.
Riri sings, “I hit a wall/ I thought that I would hurt myself/ Oh I was sure your words would leave me unconscious and on the floor/ I’d be lying cold, lifeless/ But I hit a wall/ I hit ’em all/ watch them fall/ you’re just another brick and I’m a sledgehammer“.
The new single was released for Star Trek Beyond, which is highly anticipated third film in the rebooted franchise. The film stars Idris Elba, Chris Pine, Zoe Saldana and the late Anton Yelchin.
