Kirstin Maldonado is breaking away from Pentatonix—but just a little.The singer from the all-star acapella group unveiled her debut solo single on Friday, May 19. Featuring a thunderous beat and mildly tropical electronic production, “Break a Little” is an emotional pop anthem that captures the sadness that lingers after a failed relationship.
“I’m so proud of ‘Break a Little,’” Maldonado shared in a statement, adding, “I always wanted to write a sad song that sounds happy. I think everyone can relate to this emotion. It’s about longing for something. You’re attracted to a vice or person you know you shouldn’t come back to, but you can’t help it.”, Rebranding herself as kirstin, the news comes after fans speculated the possibility of a soloproject since last week’s release of Helena Legend’s “Dose of You,” which featured the GRAMMY Award-winning artist’s vocals.
