Darren Waller Shares Song About Past Relationships “Who Knew”

Darren Waller - Who Knew Video

Atlanta-raised Darren Waller, a tight end for the New York Giants, continues to make his mark in music with the release of a music video for his latest single, “Who Knew (Her Perspective).” Produced by Fowler, the song seamlessly blends elements of rock, R&B, and hip-hop, offering a fresh perspective from the former NFL Pro Bowler on his past relationships.

Waller explains, “The song is written from the perspective of past relationship partners. It sounds like I’m getting my heart broken, but I really wrote it from the perspective of women who have tried to love me. I’ve struggled with intimacy in romantic relationships my whole life, and I recognize the toll it has taken on the lovers I’ve been close to. Essentially, I’m telling myself, from the damage I’ve done, that it’s imperative for me to heal the wounds in my life I’ve been avoiding by seeking relationships.”

He continues, “The video finds me walking in ‘her’ shoes—begging the partner to heal, expressing pain and frustration, ultimately getting hurt in the end. As the song is an attempt to see things from the woman’s perspective, the video is an extension of that, ending with me being alone and wondering why they wounded me and left me there.” The new song is a part of an upcoming full-length album set to be released later this year. Waller announced the project with the release of “Faith Test,” which centers on self-discovery and being tested in a world of instant gratification.

Earmilk praised the track, noting its “sleek, rising vocal lines and crisp, infectious percussion that create a refreshing backdrop for Waller’s poised, introspective verses.” They added that it’s “a potent, heartfelt new release with true-to-life lyricism and a stripped-back, down-to-earth approach, along with an engaging, minimalistic new visual.”
