As promised, Rihanna released the first-ever IMAX music video.
Yesterday, RiRi shared a 30-second teaser of her song for the new Star Trek movie, titled “Sledgehammer.” The mystical visual features Rihanna dressed as an extraterrestrial attempting to control earth from afar. For the epic clip Ri channels the film it soundtracks. “Sledgehammer” was written by Australian singer/songwriter Sia, who’s also responsible for penning Rihanna’s 2012 mega hit “Diamonds.”
Since releasing her eight album ANTI earlier this year Rihanna has kept herself pretty busy. She’s dropped a few videos supporting ANTI, lended vocals to Kanye’s “Famous” and sort of appeared in the controversial video.
Star Trek: Beyond stars Zoe Saldana, Chris Pine, Zachary Quinto, and is due out in theaters nationwide July 22.
