Frank Ocean Releases Axed ‘Django Unchained’ Ballad

12.23.12 5 years ago

Frank Ocean — who’s had a pretty decent year, we’d say — wrote a song for Django Unchained, but when the official soundtrack was released, his ballad, “Wiseman,” was nowhere to be found. According to Django director Quentin Tarantino, the track didn’t make the cut because “there just wasn’t a scene for it. I could have thrown it in quickly just to have it, but that’s not why he wrote it and not his intention. So I didn’t want to cheapen his effort. But, the song is fantastic, and when Frank decides to unleash it on the public, they’ll realize it then.”

Realize it below, but rest assured, according to Ocean, the film isn’t missing anything without it.
