Conversations About Her

Rihanna – Sledgehammer | Music Video



Following an exhausting four-year break, Rihanna is back on track! After the release of her eighth studio album ANTI, two smash-hit singles, and a new collaboration with Calvin Harris, Riri unveiled an unexpected new single which is part of the official soundtrack for Star Trek Beyond.


“Sledgehammer” is a power-ballad penned by Sia, and its video is nothing other than spectacular. Directed by Floria Sigismondi, the clip depicts Rihanna in a strange and empty planet. The costumes, special effects, hair and make-up are top-notch and seem to follow Sigismondi’s passion for outer space as she also directed Katy Perry‘s award-winning video for “E.T.”


The Barbadian superstar took over IMAX cinemas throughout the USA to premiere the video for “Sledgehammer” today (June 30), but it can also be viewed on normal-sized screens below:

I speak as loud as the volume I listen to music, and this is probably symptomatic of my love for pop music: I love pop music because it is often unapologetically in-your-face, it shouts rather than tell, it drives you crazy. And after 21 years loving pop music, I think I’ve completely gone mad. It all started in 1997, when my mum bought me my first cassette: needless to say, it was ‘Barbie Girl’ by Aqua, and from that point on, it’s been a never-ending loving relationship between me and music. I study, work and live life part-time, and listen to music full-time.
