A capella vocal group Pentatonix released their version of the classic Christmas tune "Little Drummer Boy" and it has become a smash hit.

The song debuted at No. 13 on the Billboard Hot 100 charts, for the week ending December 21. Their music video, which was posted on their official YouTube channel on November 25, has accumulated well over 17 million views, within a matter of a few weeks.

Pentatonix had risen to fame after winning the third season of the NBC singing competition, The Sing-Off.


The Verdict
Overall, it is safe to say that Pentatonix can sound good on anything they sing. This is one of the best versions of the Christmas classic "Little Drummer Boy" that I have heard since country-folk sensation Emmylou Harris had covered it for her Light of the Stable album. This song garners an A.
