A year after the movie's premiere, the 'Pitch Perfect' hit crowns its first Billboard airplay chart
More than a year after the release of "Pitch Perfect," the movie's lead Anna Kendrick reaches No. 1 on Billboard's Adult Contemporary radio airplay chart with "Cups (Pitch Perfect's When I'm Gone)," which rises 2-1.
(All charts will refresh on Billboard.com on Thursday, Oct. 10.)
The honor is the latest in a long journey for the song. "Pitch Perfect" premiered in U.S. theaters on Sept. 28, 2012, and has since grossed $113 million in worldwide box office receipts. The film's soundtrack rose to No. 3 on the Billboard 200 in February and has sold 912,000 copies in the U.S., according to Nielsen SoundScan. "Cups" has sold 2.5 million downloads.
