Oh, so that’s why Anna Kendrick released that video for “Cups.” In addition to being a surprise, sequel-spawning box office hit, “Pitch Perfect” was also a smash soundtrack success that’s still topping the Billboard charts in that category today. You would think that Universal Music Group might have done a better push for this, or at least raised some kind of awareness, but anyway a new EP of sorts of additional songs from the movie is here.
Kendrick’s “Cups” aka “When I’m Gone” kicks things off, along with the pretty dope remix/mashup of Azealia Banks‘ “212” and Young MC‘s “Bust A Move.” Nicki Minaj, Yeasayer and more round it all out. Why this is coming somewhat randomly months after the film is a bit of a question mark, but fans who have been searching for these songs (and they have been) will undoubtedly be pleased. “More Pitch Perfect” is now available on iTunes and arrives on CD on May 14th.
