I guess I’ve been under a rock for the last week or so. I had no idea that Rihanna recorded a song for STAR TREK BEYONDso when Kellvin asked me to cover this item I thought there was a new viral video for the film featuring Peter Gabriel’s 80s classic “Sledgehammer.” Turns out I was way off!

So here’s the cosmic music video for Rihanna’s STAR TREK BEYOND song “Sledgehammer.”

I defy you to tell me that this wouldn’t have been a better song for STAR TREK BEYOND!

Anyway, the latest entry in the J.J. Abrams-produced rebooted STAR TREK film franchise, directed by Justin Lin, comes out on July 22. And Rihanna’s new song for STAR TREK BEYOND, titled “Sledgehammer,” is available for download now.
