Jessie J Illuminates at Barden University in 'Pitch Perfect 2' 'Flashlight' Music Video [WATCH]
The real musical stars of Pitch Perfect 2 may very well be the a cappella singing Barden Bellas, but that doesn't mean there isn't plenty of room for other new music on the soundtrack. Today (April 24), Jessie J visited Barden and released the video for her new single "Flashlight," and we think that she'd fit right in with Anna Kendrick, Rebel Wilson and co.
For the music video, J heads to the fictional Barden University, where Pitch Perfect 2 takes place. As she walks around the campus, singing her powerful ballad, she encounters a couple in the middle of an argument. They storm off, seemingly angry at each other and possibly even breaking up. The two walk around heartbroken and alone, while J continues to light up the quad with her positive energy and performance and scenes from the emotional highlights of Pitch Perfect 2 play out on screen.
But what would a lighthearted movie be without a happy ending? After minutes of glowing and performing, J eventually throws her own big concert, complete with flashlights illuminating the stage from the audience.
As for the love story, well, it ends well, with J interjecting into the conflict and giving the boy a bright yellow daisy to gift his girl.
And college love lives on!
