Trekkies everywhere can rejoice knowing Rihanna is part of the clan.
The singer released “Sledgehammer” this week, her massive Sia-penned song for the Star Trek: Beyond soundtrack, and reveals in new video interview why she did.
“Star Trek has been a part of my life since I was a little girl,” Rihanna said. “My dad is really the one who introduced me to Star Trek. It just took me one episode to fall in love with this world that I couldn’t understand but I felt like I could relate to.”
She adds the franchise is a global phenomenon and was honored to be a part of it. No, seriously, her enthusiasm feels honest.
“It wasn’t just doing another song for any random film,” she continued. “I love Star Trek!”
