Rihanna Is In Full Ballad Mode On New Song 'Sledgehammer'

The Star Trek Beyond single was written by Sia

The summer of Rihanna keeps rolling in. This time, she’s back with a powerful new ballad for the Star Trek Beyond soundtrack.

On “Sledgehammer,” Rihanna flexes those vocal chops we heard at her Billboard Music Awards performance. She’s in full-blown ballad mode courtesy of Sia, who penned the new track.

“I hit a wall,” Rihanna sings. “You’re just another break / And I’m a sledgehammer."

BTW, can we talk about how amazing Rihanna looks as a goth alien? When is she returning to the sci-fi screen?
