Rihanna – Sledgehammer [Video Premiere]
Barbadian pop songstress Rihanna lends her vocals to the upcoming Star Trek Beyond film’s soundtrack on the harrowing ballad titled ‘Sledgehammer’.
Following their 2012 worldwide smash ‘Diamonds’, Rihanna reunites with Sia who lends her midas touch to the soundtrack anthem and ‘Sledgehammer’ has the Australian powerhouse’s stamp all over it with RiRi channeling Sia’s enrapturing vocal delivery further showcasing the 28-year old’s growing vocal range and adaptability.
“And on the floor I’d be lying cold, lifeless / But I hit a wall, I hit ’em all, watch the fall / You’re just another brick and I’m a sledgehammer” Rihanna soars in an empowering manner over a dramatic production that hits cloud nine on the chorus with stadium filling percussion and ethereal sweeps of synths. Listen to ‘Sledgehammer’ below which appears to have been in the making since 2014:
