Everyone’s doing music for movies these days, although it’s really nothing new, remember Vanilla Ice‘s Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles song? That was 25 years ago. Fallout Boy and Missy Elliot took a crack at updating the Ghostbusters theme song and now Rihanna has slipped a track (Sledgehammer) in the new Star Trek Beyond soundtrack. You can check it out in the new trailer below.Rihanna announced the single on Twitter:

Word around the Internet is that she’s been working on this song for quite a while, back in 2014 she tweeted:
You’re just another brick and I’m a sledgehammer #barz
What did you think? It certainly fits the mood of the trailer quite well. Director Justin Lin‘s Star Trek Beyond hits theater screens July 22nd, starring Chris Pine, Zachary Quinto, Karl Urban, Zoe Saldana, Simon Pegg, and Anton Yelchin, who tragically died in an accident at the age of 27.
