Quentin Tarantino Explains Why Frank Ocean is Absent from the "Django Unchained" Soundtrack

Frank Ocean sat down with GQ a few weeks ago and told the men's magazine that he had written a song for Quentin Tarantino's new film Django Unchained. Excited about this new-found news Frank Ocean fans may have been disappointed to find Ocean's name absent upon the release of the movie's official soundtrack.

Recently Tarantino released a statement and this is how it read:

"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."

The Django Unchained soundtrack features new music from Rick Ross and Jamie Foxx as well as tracks from Anthony Hamilton, John Legend, and legendary composer Ennio Morricone. The album is set for release on December 18 and the movie will be in theaters on Christmas day.
