Track Description
Available in:
"Sledgehammer" is a song recorded by Barbadian singer Rihanna. It was released on June 27, 2016 as a single to promote Star Trek Beyond. It plays during the film's end credits but is not included on the film's soundtrack. The song was written by Sia Furler, Robyn Fenty and Jesse Shatkin.

A music video for the song was released on June 30, 2016, and shows Rihanna performing magical acts on a foreign planet. The video was shot entirely on IMAX cameras and premiered June 30, 2016 in IMAX theaters at 9:00am EST. The video was then released onto Vevo and Tidal an hour later. The music video features Rihanna dressed in a sci-fi costume performing magic by moving boulders. At the video's ending, Rihanna turns into a celestial god, face to "face" with the USS Enterprise. The video was shot at the Trona Pinnacles by director Floria Sigismondi.

"So there you are, the Starship Enterprise, toddling along at about warp factor 3, just minding your own business, when you come across a new nebula that looks just like Rihanna... We knew she was big, but this is ridiculous. Floria Sigismondi's video for Sledgehammer is, no surprise, a tie-in with the new Star Trek movie. It is also the first music video to be photographed on the IMAX Alexa camera, and will be shown in IMAX theatres. And needless to say, the song has nothing to do Peter Gabriel. It was written by Sia, and frankly, sounds more like Sia than Rihanna. No matter, Ri-ri definitely makes a better space goddess." (David Knight, Promonews)
