Anna Kendrick is most known for her acting, starring in many films including 'Up in the Air' and of course 'Pitch Perfect' where this single originated. The single version was re-mixed from the soundtrack version and was extended by an additional minute. The song is still short (only 2:07) but is carried by Kendrick's strong and soulful voice. A unique mixture of percussion beats make up the majority of the beat. The lyrics are tight and build up to the energetic "You're gonna miss me when I'm gone" chorus. The song ends with hand-claps and the strength of Kendrick's voice. Mirroring the subject matter, the listener definitely is left wanting more. She sings in the song: "It's got mountains, it's got rivers, it's got sights to give you shivers. But it sure would be prettier with you."
'Cups' also recently became the official song of soccer's 2013 CONCACAF Gold Cup. Fans can listen to 'Cups' right now on AOL Radio's Fresh 40.
