We’re officially less than a month away from the long-awaited sequel to America’s most beloved a cappella film. Pitch Perfect 2 will hit theaters May 15, so I’ve decided to compile a list of songs we’ve heard so far from everyone’s favorite battle, the Riff Off.
Side note: On account of school currently stealing away any and all fun I have in my life, this will be a shorter post than normal. But hey, not everyone wants to read huge walls of text all the time, so it works out, right? LOOK HOW CONVENIENT THIS IS FOR YOU. Now appreciate it. And pray that I make it out of this semester alive, because I’m honestly surprised I have the brain power to even be writing this right now.
Anyway, in the exclusive clip released earlier this week, the Bellas take on their competitors with the help of a few more ’90s hip-hop jams, which everybody knows I (along with Parks and Rec‘s Ben Wyatt… remember Benji’s Cool Times Summer Jamz Mix?) have a strong love for.
Here are the songs you heard from this category:
THIIIIS IS HOW WE DO IIIT by Montell Jordan (Presented phonetically for your listening/reading pleasure.)
Doo-Wop (That Thing) by Lauryn Hill
Poison by Bell Biv Devoe
Scenario by A Tribe Called Quest
In the Super Bowl spot, we were granted two more songs.
Before He Cheats by Carrie Underwood
Bootylicious by Destiny’s Child
Other categories in the Riff Off include Country Love and I Dated John Mayer. Can it be May 15 yet?
Look how easy that was to digest. If I say so myself, this post has been properly crushed. Stay tuned next week to see if my brain has turned into Jell-O.
