WATCH: Rihanna’s Star Trek-Filled "Sledgehammer" Music Video

The official music video for Rihanna’s new song “Sledgehammer” is here!

The song, which hit iTunes, Tidal and Spotify earlier this week, will be featured in the STAR TREK BEYOND soundtrack. The video includes tons of Star Trek imagery — from the Starship Enterprise to alien planets and even Rihanna herself with similar facial markings as Sofia Boutella’s character Jaylah.

Check out the video below.

“This song, it needed to be big and impactful,” Rihanna said of “Sledgehammer”, which dropped on Monday with the film’s final trailer.

On Wednesday, Paramount provided us with a video of Rihanna talking what Star Trek means to her — all while sporting a vintage TOS t-shirt.

Directed by Justin Lin, written by Simon Pegg, Doug Jung, Roberto Orci, John D. Payne and Patrick McCay, Star Trek Beyond stars Chris Pine, Zachary Quinto, Simon Pegg, Karl Urban, Zoe Saldana, John Cho, Anton Yelchin, Idris Elba and Sofia Boutella. The film is scheduled to hit theaters on July 22 after premiering during San Diego Comic-Con on July 20.
