Frank Ocean-Wise Man

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, 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.

Huge praise from Tarantino, the director of this song’s original destination, Django Unchained. The sharp, piercing guitar plucks give the track a strong backdrop to start, before Frank cuts loose with some emotional vocals that he seems to deliver with a slight Carribean accent. A great set of synths and strings then jump in, adding a quick burst of positivity and depth and enhancing the ‘your mother would be proud of you’ hook, which itself is part of an excellently-written piece that progresses the track from raw, blunt sections to the harmonised and notably more emotionally connected lines. An excellent all-rounder that genuinely feels cinematic at times, and deserving of Tarantino’s praise.
