Hear Rihanna's 'Star Trek Beyond' Track 'Sledgehammer'

After teasing the release to her fansRihanna's Star Trey Beyond track "Sledgehammer" has now arrived! The soaring soundtrack cut premiered in the film's new trailer, which you can enjoy above. Rihanna reunited with Sia for "Sledgehammer," who also penned her chart-topping "Diamonds" single in 2012.

The ballad mirrors the intensity of the film, with Rih belting “I’m bracing for the pain and I’m letting go / I hit a wall, I thought that I would hurt myself" over colossal, drum-heavy production that will have even the most nonchalant Trekkie excited for the movie's premiere. 

Star Trek Beyond hits theaters July 22, and will mark Anton Yelchin's first posthumous release (he plays Pavel Chekov) since his tragic death. Stream Rihanna's "Sledgehammer" below via Spotify, and click here to read our complete guide to the anticipated Star Trek Beyond
