Former Vikings defensive back Antone Exum releases new song
By Adam Carlson
Antone Exum spent two seasons with the Minnesota Vikings and is hoping to spend some time on the music charts by releasing his single “Verdant Valentine”.
In 2014, the Minnesota Vikings used a sixth-round draft pick on defensive back Antone Exum. With the team, he showcased his skills on the football field but the defensive back had more to offer the world in terms of talent.
Although Exum has moved on from the purple and gold to play for the San Francisco 49ers, his commitment to music and football stayed strong. On Friday, May 17, 2019, Exum announced the release of a new single for fans to listen to.
Here is the announcement of the release of “Verdant Valentine” as shared on Exum’s Instagram account:
Whatever you are expecting a song from Antone Exum to sound like…you’re probably wrong. Clicking on the link to his YouTube channel where “Verdant Valentine” is hosted, it’s strange to notice the trippy visuals and unexpected beat Exum provides vocals over.
The sound is likely to divide fans. While the beat is catchy, there is still a bit of an awkward feeling about the vocals. However, this is a pretty solid effort from an NFL player who is looking to make a name for himself in the music industry.
If nothing, this of this as a jumping off point for Exum. It’s a great platform for him to express himself and pursue another passion in his life. And it’s great to see fans of his support him as he continues to create music and plays.
If you like what you heard, be sure to follow Antone Exum on Instagram or on his YouTube channel to stay up to date with any future releases he may make. Fans of the Minnesota Vikings can see him when he suits up for the 49ers this season.
