According to Billboard, “Sledgehammer” took a couple of years to release. In 2014, the singer shared a cryptic tweet in which she wrote: “You’re just another brick and I’m a sledgehammer.”
“Star Trek Beyond” is third installment in the rebooted franchise. The movie will hit cinemas July 22, but the release date for movie soundtrack has yet to be announced.
“Star Trek Beyond” stars Chris Prine, Zoe Saldana, Idris Elba, Zachary Quinto, Simon Pegg, Karl Urban, Sofia Boutella, John Cho, and the late Anton Yelchin. The movie will be directed by Justin Lin, Entertainment Weekly wrote.
Rihanna recently made headlines when she was caught crying during her performance of the song “Love the Way You Lie” at a concert in Dublin. Mirror wrote that after her performance, Rihanna turned to social media to express how grateful she was for her crew. However, the “Work” singer did not mention anything about the sobbing incident.
There have been rumors that the 28-year-old singer probably cried because of a mystery man she is dating with. Although there is no confirmation on who the singer is currently dating, it can be recalled that she sparked rumors about a secret relationship with NBA superstar LeBron James. According to Complex, the speculations began when the singer referred to the Cleveland Cavalier player as “bae.” However, the site also noted that the idea as far-fetched.
The Barbados-born singer was previously linked to Drake, Leonardo Dicaprio and Chris Brown.
Meanwhile, Rihanna is currently busy with the European leg of her “Anti World Tour.” The tour will end next month, but she will have another show in Abu Dhabi on Nov. 27.
