The 'Pitch Perfect 2' "Cups" song is here, and it's perfectly bittersweet
Yes, the song will be stuck in your head forever (again), but Pitch Perfect 2’s “Cups” might be better than the original. With this new version, gone are the trademark cups for Anna Kendrick to create a beat. Instead, we’ve got the Barden Bellas sitting around a campfire, making s’mores, and talking about how they’re going to go their separate ways soon. I’m not crying, YOU’RE the one who’s crying, okay??
It’s Becca (Anna Kendrick) who starts off the conversation, noting that when she looks back at her time as a Bella, she’s not going to remember competing or performing, but instead she’ll remember the friends she made along the way. After a somber pause, Brittany Snow’s Chloe starts quietly singing “Cups.” And when all the girls join in, it hits us all right in the FEELS. Seriously, check it out for a huge dose of acapella girl power – and check out newest Bella, Hailee Steinfeld!
We’re now just two short weeks away from Pitch Perfect 2 opening on May 15th, and seriously it can’t get here soon enough. But man, as soon as those end credits roll, we’re going to miss these girls once they’re gone. So it’s a really good thing there’s already a Pitch Perfect 3 in the works!
