Wise Man – Frank Ocean: Song of the Day 12/26

Frank Ocean fans had quite a scare earlier this month when reading headlines which said Frank Ocean was contemplating retirement from music. Ocean is up for multiple Grammy awards after his first album and for his fans to hear they may never get the chance to listen to another Ocean album was a little scary. Their fright did not last long. Only days after Frank’s comments, he released today’s Song of the Day.

Originally planned to be released on the Django Unchained soundtrack, “Wise Man” is a deep, powerful ballad. It is hard to think of another in today’s culture who could release a song quite like this.

Despite high praise from Django director Quentin Tarantino, “Wise Man” was not included on the soundtrack simply because there was not a scene for the track. This should not dampen the success of “Wise Man”. It should only strengthen Ocean’s argument for each one of the Grammy’s in which he is nominated.

Listen to “Wise Man” below.
