Rihanna has teased a video for her new single, Sledgehammer, which will appear on the Star Trek Beyond soundtrack.

The track appeared on iTunes two days ago and on Sunday night, the singer hinted on Instagram that she's "got something for y'all tomorrow".

She delivered on her promise on Monday morning and announced on Twitter that her single Sledgehammer would appear on the new Star Trek Beyond soundtrack, alongside a teaser video for the song.

The song could have been written as early as two years ago; fan source Rihanna Diaries discovered a tweet from 2014 with the lyrics "you're just another brick and I'm a sledgehammer."

Rihanna has already released a line of Star Trek-inspired sunglasses in collaboration with Dior.

  Star Trek Beyond is directed by Justin Lin and stars Chris Prine, Zoe Saldana, Zachary Quinto, Idris Elba, Simon Pegg, Karl Urban, Sofia Boutella, John Cho, and the late Anton Yelchin.
