Listen to Rihanna's badass Star Trek ballad

Rihanna has unveiled her latest single, and it's out of this world.

Her new song Sledgehammer, which features in the latest trailer for Star Trek Beyond, showcases the singer's vocals in a ballad of epic proportions.

Featuring the lyrics "You're just another brick and I'm a sledgehammer", the song backs stunning space scenes and action-packed alien showdowns that will feature in the upcoming Star Trek film.

Rihanna has seemingly been working on the song since 2014 when she posted some of the lyrics to the emotional ballad on Twitter.


Australian singer/songwriter Sia also had a hand in creating the song, according to MTV.com.
