New Music: Frank Ocean "Wise Man"


Frank Ocean has dropped a new single "Wise Man." The track, an emotional, poetic ballad in the mold of previous Ocean songs like "Thinkin' Bout You" and "Bad Religion," was originally intended for the Django Unchained soundtrack, before being cut by Quentin Tarantino.

"Frank Ocean wrote a fantastic ballad that was truly lovely and poetic in every way, there just wasn't a scene for it," Tarantino said. "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."

I guess we're realizing it now, as Ocean released the song over the weekend on Tumblr. Proving there was no tea nor shade about the situation, he wrote "django was ill without it." Listen below.
