Royston Drenthe releases rap song under the name roya2faces

Osasuna-Real Madrid live

How do you go from Real Madrid to being released by Baniyas to recording rap songs under the name Roya2Faces in under a decade? You'll have to ask 29-year-old Royston Drenthe because he released a song callled 'Paranoid' this week that has amassed just over 3,000 views on YouTube unde that very pseudonym.

Drenthe's career trajectory

Drenthe's career trajectory is a strange one. He burst onto the scene along with the likes of Ryan Babel as the Netherlands strode to victory in the 2007 under-21 Euro Championship and moved to the capital of Spain that summer for around €13.5 million. Just six years after that move, he was signing on the dotted line for Reading as a free agent and things for worse from there from a footballing standpoint for the former Feyenoord winger. He was released by Baniyas in the UAE most recently.

The YouTube page that published the song says that music has always been a passion of Drenthe's and that there will be plenty more songs to come from the former Real Madrid, Everton and Sheffield Wednesday player.
