In the latest trailer of the new film Star Trek Beyond, we can listen to Rihanna performing the song Sledgehammer, composed by Sia. In the new Star Trek movie series you can watch Pine, Zachary Quinto, Karl Urban, Zoe Saldana, John Cho and the regretted actor Anton Yelchin. Star Trek Beyond is a sequel to Star Trek Into Darkness from 2013. This time, the mission of the board of the USS Enterprise is to fight an invasion of aliens.

Song about power

The song Sledgehammer -- which has the same title as one of the songs by the band Fifth Harmony in 2015 and another one launched by Peter Gabriel -- has a melodic line which is in contrast with the sounds of the singer's songs from her last album Anti. This album is considered the least commercial and the most experimental one from what Rihanna has launched so far.

The song which appears on the soundtrack of the movie Star Trek Beyond whose co-author is the singer Sia, is an anthem about power and force that fits Rihanna's vocal abilities. The fitting with the intense action of intergalactic space -- typical to the Star Trek series -- emphasizes the emotional impact of the song Sledgehammer. The movie Star Trek beyond premiered on July 22nd.
