Rihanna’s known to create masterpieces, and her latest video is nothing short of one.

Premiering at 10 a.m. this morning (June 30) the Barbadian singer dropped the visuals for her single "Sledgehammer." The Star Trek: Beyond soundtrack-based song also uses the movie’s inspiration for the video as viewers are taken through the cosmos eventually ending up with RiRi performing on an alien planet.

Directed by Floria Sigismondi, the visual is the first IMAX music video and aired before screenings of Legend of Tarzan.
