Rihanna is set to send the Star Trek franchise into warp drive.
The pop superstar has teased an epic video for her song “Sledgehammer,” which will appear on the official Star Trek Beyond soundtrack.

“Sledgehammer” has apparently taken some two years to drop. The Barbados-born singer shared a cryptic tweet back in 2014 which read, “You’re just another brick and I’m a sledgehammer.”
Star Trek Beyond, the hugely anticipated third film in the rebooted Star Trek franchise, will hit cinemas July 22, though a release date for the soundtrack has yet to be announced. Rihanna is getting into the spirit of the movie; she appears at the close of the new teaser with alien markings on her face.
The full clip is tipped to l go live at 8am ET.
