Rihanna is back with new song “Sledgehammer,” the title of which has Fifth Harmony stans up in arms (PSA to you youngsters: Peter Gabriel did it before both of ’em). It’s off the Star Trek: Beyond soundtrack, and it was written by Sia — as you may remember, the last time these two worked together it resulted in Rihanna’s No. 1 hit “Diamonds.”

“Sledgehammer” is a big, colossal anthem fit for a blockbuster, with Rihanna singing “I hit a wall, I never felt so low…You’re just another brick and I’m a sledgehammer,” showing off the full range of her voice. Like “Diamonds,” it highlights some of her vocal similarities with Sia.

Hear it below, and check it out in the latest trailer as well.
