Rihanna and Sia have teamed up on “Sledgehammer,” a song off of the soundtrack to Star Trek: Beyond, coming this July. The two have made a fine pair before, notably, on the mega-hit “Diamonds.” The new track reaches similarly epic proportions, though lacks a chorus that most of us could chime along to, without some vocal training that is.

Both artists are currently promoting successful albums: Anti for Rihanna, This Is Acting for Sia. This September, Rihanna is set to headline the Made In America festival, in Philadelphia. Sia is scheduled to headline the third day of New York City’s new Panorama festival, thrown by the founders of Coachella.

The single makes it’s way into Star Trek’s new trailer as well.
