Rihanna flexes her supernatural powers on a foreign planet in the spacey visual for "Sledgehammer," the Sia-penned track off the soundtrack for the sci-fi flick Star Trek Beyond

"You're just another brick and I'm a sledgehammer," sings an eyebrow-less Rihanna, who plays a beautiful alien in a billowing red ensemble and cosmic face paint while lifting matter and boulders with her hands. By the clip's end, the Starship Enterprise also makes a cameo, then flies into a shimmering Rihanna-shaped constellation.
