With 6 Grammy nominations under his belt, a critically acclaimed début album that has made its way up every best-of-2012 chart around the globe, along with being a commercial smash – Frank Ocean is undoubtedly THE break-out star of the year.
With ‘Channel Orange‘ showing no signs of slowing down in terms of sales, the r’n’b crooner has just unveiled a poignant new ballad ‘Wise Man‘, originally scheduled to be included in the new Quentin Tarantino movie ‘Django Unchained‘, but was eventually left out of the soundtrack.
The stunning soul-drenched ballad has a minimalist approach to it, and it’s Ocean’s songwriting skills that stand out.
“But strong man don’t exist
No undying man exists
Weak man don’t exist no
Just flesh and blood exists
But your mother would be proud of you
I bet your mother would be proud of you.”
Easily, my fave Frank Ocean song as of now.
