Rihanna – Sledgehammer (new video)

Just days after releasing the powerful ballad “Sledgehammer”, Rihanna is back with the song’s video.
The four minute video, directed by Italian-Canadian photographer and director Floria Sigismondi (Katy Perry, Christina Aguilera, Justin Timberlake), was filmed with a big budget, in the desert in a place called the Trona Pinnacles, about four hours away from Los Angeles.
The clip features the Barbadian singer in alien priestess garb, on a desolate world, and dancing and swaying beneath a celestial tapestry.
With “Sledgehammer” video, Rihanna made history by being the first artist to ever premiere a music video on IMAX.

Lyrics:

I hit a wall, I never felt so low, so low
Like a waterfall, my tears dropped to the floor, the floor
They left a swimming pool of salted crimes, crimes
Oh, what could I do to change your mind?
Nothing

I’m bracing for the pain and I am letting go
I’m using all my strength to get out of this hole

I hit a wall, I thought that I would hurt myself
Oh I was sure, your words would leave me unconscious
And on the floor I’d be lying cold, lifeless
But I hit a wall, I hit ’em all, watch the fall
You’re just another brick and I’m a sledgehammer
You’re just another brick and I’m a sledgehammer

Yeah I hit a wall, I prayed that I would make it through, make it through
I can survive a life that’s without you, that’s without you, yeah
And I will rise up from the ashes now, the ashes now
Oh, the sparrow flies with just the crumbs of loving spilled, yeah

I was bracing for the pain and then I let it go
I gathered all my strength and I found myself whole

I hit a wall, I thought that I would hurt myself
Oh I was sure, your words would leave me unconscious
And on the floor I’d be lying cold, lifeless
But I hit a wall, I hit ’em all, watch the fall
You’re just another brick and I’m a sledgehammer
You’re just another brick and I’m a sledgehammer
You’re just another brick and I’m a sledgehammer
You’re just another brick and I’m a sledgehammer
