Watch RiRi Play an Alien Sorceress in Her New Video For Sledgehammer...

...with some trippy psychedelic visuals.




Rihanna is the first artist to have her music video shot with the Imax Alexa camera, following the browless RiRi (who BTW belongs to some futuristic tribe in the vid) as she worships alien planets and dances ritualistically in a cinematic display. The video, directed by Floria Sigismondi, is also the first-ever music video premiered at the Imax Theater.

The song—Sledgehammer—is the title track for the upcoming movie Star Trek Beyond, and the cool AF video has Rihanna commanding all the flying robotic objects (that you must have seen attacking the Enterprise in the movie's official trailer).​ 

Rihanna might not be in the film, but she sure does look like she belongs in it!
