It’s Turtle Time for Kristie Maldonado and Pentatonix…
The half-Mexican American/part-Spanish signer/artist and her fellow Pentatonix group members have released a special Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles track.
The a cappella group, winners of NBC‘s singing competition The Sing-Off in 2011, released a new song, “We Are Ninjas,” in anticipation of the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles movie release.
“The idea is we’re kind of riffing off the turtles,” said director Melissa Bolton-Klinger in a behind-the-scenes clip. “Dark alleyway scenes, kind of West Side Story meets ninjas.”
“Long before our days begins/What every hero needs/Is a big ‘ol greasy piece,” Pentatonix sing alongside shots of the turtles, referencing the TMNT’s obsessions with pizza.
Additionally, it was announced that Pentatonix will appear in Pitch Perfect 2 as a Canadian group that rivals the Barden Bellas.
