Frank Ocean, the man behind your favorite album of the year, wrote a song for Quentin Tarantino’s Django Unchained but it didn’t make the soundtrack. Here’s what the director said about it in a statement last month:
Frank Ocean wrote a fantastic ballad that was truly lovely and poetic in every way, 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.
Last night Frank posted the song on his Tumblr. Listen to it below, and check out the lyrics here.
