Rihanna's New Single "Sledgehammer" Is About to Give You Chills

"You're just another brick..."

The summer of RiRi shows no sign of stopping...and we're here for it. Her latest offering, "Sledgehammer," is a new single for theStar Trek Beyond soundtrack and she's going intergalactic/letting her emotions run wild.

You're just another brick and I'm a sledgehammer she sings, inevitably sending chills down your spine. And if the lyric sounds familiar, it's because she tweeted it back in 2014, which means she's had this in the works for quite some time. And it shows.

The album art is equally as stirring with RiRi's long black hair blowing in the wind and alien-like markings all over her face. 

Star Trek Beyond, the thirteenth film in the franchise, hits theaters July 22.
