Rihanna to release new song ‘Sledgehammer’ on ‘Star Trek Beyond’ soundtrack

Twitter account @PopCrave has spotted a promo for the track on iTunes

Rihanna appears to have recorded a brand new song for the soundtrack of Star Trek Beyond.

Twitter account @PopCrave spotted a promo for the track, titled ‘Sledgehammer’, on iTunes earlier today (June 24) and shared a screen-grab with followers.

Rihanna has yet to confirm her Star Trek Beyond song, which will presumably drop at some point before the film hits cinema screens on July 22. Idris Elba plays the main villain in the movie, joining franchise regulars Chris Pine, Zachary Quinto and Simon Pegg, who has co-written its script.

Meanwhile, Rihanna begins the UK leg of her ‘Anti World Tour’ tonight (June 24) with a huge show at London’s Wembley Stadium. She will then play stadium dates in Coventry, Glasgow and Manchester. Check out her full UK leg below.

During her show in Dublin earlier this week, Rihanna was moved to tears as she performed on stage. She told the crowd later in their performance: “I only have ever in my life heard an audience of people scream so loud that they sound like one voice and that only happens in Ireland, in Dublin. Thank you so much.”
