While the Quentin Tarantino-directed slavery western “Django Unchained” is set to release on Christmas Day, it seems like Frank Ocean’s contribution to the film was left on the cutting room floor.
He uploaded the twangy, reverb-heavy song on his personal Tumblr, with “django was ill without it.” as the caption.
Ocean also posted a snapshot of the lyrics, so those who dig it can kuumbaaya to the song in real-time.
That being said, I actually had the chance to attend a press screening for the film this past Tuesday. The film as a whole is solid, although Tarantino goes too far in the violence department. But don’t take my word for it; see it for yourself!
The soundtrack, which is available for purchase, was varied and enjoyable, featuring the likes of Western stalwarts like Ennio Morricone (who scored the “Man With No Name” trilogy) as well as a crazy Tupac-James Brown redux and tracks from Rick Ross and John Legend.
But this Frank Ocean track was not in the film.
