If you’re counting down the days until Pitch Perfect 2 hits theaters, then this aca-awesome clip of actress Brittany Snow rapping will definitely make your day.

Snow may hit all the right notes as the Barden Bella‘s co-captain, but what you may not know is that she also has some pretty sick rap skills up her sleeve.

The actress, who reprises her role as Chloe in the upcoming comedy, revealed the hidden talent when she stopped by The Ellen DeGeneres Show on Monday, where she performed her rendition of Coolio’s hit single, “Gangsta’s Paradise.”



The moment came after DeGeneres said she heard a rumor that the cast would often go out and sing karaoke together after work was done for the day. When Snow revealed that her go-to karaoke song was in fact the 1995 hit single, Ellen couldn’t help but ask the actress to perform a bit of the song on the show.

Though obviously a bit nervous, Snow rose to the occasion and definitely delivered. We’re not sure which is better — the fact that Snow proved to everyone that she’s got some serious skills on the mic, or the awesome dance moves that accompanied her rendition of “Gangsta’s Paradise.”

Regardless of which you enjoyed more, one thing’s for sure: if there’s a Pitch Perfect 3, we’re definitely hoping the writers bring Snow back and somehow find a way to squeeze in a rap number for her character, Chloe!

Pitch Perfect 2 opens in theaters this Friday, May 15.
