Rihanna Teases ‘Sledgehammer’ Music Video: Watch

By Amanda Wicks

Rihanna teased her upcoming music video today (June 29) on Instagram. It’s for the song she contributed to the upcoming Star Trek Beyond soundtrack, titled “Sledgehammer.” The brooding song features lower vocals from Rihanna to give it an ominous feel.

The video appears to match that in kind. Rihanna wears her distinct take on a samurai outfit while standing on a strange planet in the wilderness. She crouches low to the earth before rising up, which seems to shift the planet’s atmosphere.

Artists have been finding unique ways to premiere their music videos in recent years, but Rihanna’s might mark the most original. “Sledgehammer” will be the first music video to debut on IMAX theater screens for a larger than life watch party.

The video will be available June 30th at 9:00am ET at IMAX and then will be available online on TIDAL and VEVO at 10am ET. Star Trek Beyond hits theaters July 22. Check out the teaser for “Sledgehammer” below.
