It’s rare that a Frank Ocean song needs to be promoted these days, but this one could slip through the cracks and deserves to be heard.
Penned for the Django Unchained soundtrack, the track, titled “Wiseman,” didn’t end up finding a place on the movie’s soundtrack. Ocean and filmmaker Quentin Tarantino were quick to show their support for each other though, with Ocean reviewing “Django was ill without it” and Tarantino explaining that while he believed the song was a “fantastic ballad that was truly lovely and poetic in every way, there just wasn’t a scene for it…so I didn’t want to cheapen his effort.”
While it unfortunately doesn’t have a real home anymore, this track is worth a spot in your musical library. Stream it below.
