Rihanna's 'Sledgehammer' Music Video Is The First Ever To Premiere In IMAX Theaters

Rihanna takes her career to new heights, becoming the first to premiere a music video in IMAX theaters. 

Earlier this week, superstar songstress and fashion icon Rihanna released her latest single, "Sledgehammer," from the upcoming Star Trek Beyond film, and now she's followed up with the visual.

Keeping with the feel of the movie itself, the video features Rihanna outfitted in an oversized burnt orange jumpsuit with futuristic makeup and hair as she belts out the song's lyrics in the middle of the desert. The video premiered in select IMAX theaters early Thursday morning, before later debuting on both TIDAL and VEVO.
