Pitch Perfect became a surprise smash hit in 2012, making a musical star out of Anna Kendrick and an enduring earworm out of her version of "Cups." The sequel's soundtrack delivers more of the Barden Bellas -- and more of "Cups" -- as the gang faces off against the European a cappella champions. The ladies perform vocals-only versions of new and old pop, R&B, and hip-hop hits (including the Supremes' "You Can't Hurry Love," Pat Benatar's "We Belong," and Beyoncé's "Girls Run the World"), as well as the Sia & Sam Smith-penned original "Flashlight." Performed in the movie by Hailee Steinfeld, whose character Emily is the latest addition to the Barden Bellas, the song was also a single for Jessie J. ~ Heather Phares
