New Music: Rihanna – “Sledgehammer”
Rihanna’s back and this time she has swinging! Following singles like “This Is What You Came For” and “Nothing Is Promised” comes another heavy hitter titled “Sledgehammer”. The new track, a cut off the Star Trek: Beyond soundtrack, is an anthemic vocal powerhouse that serves as a companion to the upcoming sci-fi film. “I hit a wall,” she sings triumphantly. “I thought that I would hurt myself / Oh I was sure your words would leave me unconscious and on the floor / I’d be lying cold, lifeless / But I hit a wall / I hit ’em all / Watch them fall / You’re just another brick and I’m a sledgehammer.” I’m unsure if they shot a video to the banger but judging from the single’s art, the pop superstar has something up her sleeves. Man! Between this ballad, her current electronic, dance floor-filler and the trap-inspired Mike Will Made It, Rihanna’s dominating in all areas! Always looking forward to more music from RiRi!
