Maldonado & Pentatonix Release Special Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles Single

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.
