Music Video For Rihanna's New Star Trek Beyond Song
"But I hit a wall, I hit 'em all, watch the fall / You're just another brick and I'm a sledgehammer."
Earlier this week, Rihanna's new Star Trek Beyond song, titled "Sledgehammer," made its debut in the latest trailer for the thirteenth Star Trek film. Of course, a track this hot needs a music video to go with.
Additionally, a featurette was released in which Rihanna explains how she became a Trekkie and how honored she is to create music for the franchise.
"Star Trek has been a part of my life since I was a little girl," she shared. "My dad really is the one who introduced me to Star Trek. It just took me one episode to fall in love with this other world that I couldn't understand, but I felt like I could relate to. I was always very curious about the characters and the storyline. You always felt emotionally connected to the characters and whatever they were going through."
Star Trek Beyond, the highly anticipated next installment in the globally popular Star Trek franchise, created by Gene Roddenberry and reintroduced by J.J. Abrams in 2009, returns with director Justin Lin ("The Fast and the Furious" franchise) at the helm of this epic voyage of the U.S.S. Enterprise and her intrepid crew.
