Why Didn't Frank Ocean Make The 'Django Unchained' Soundtrack?

Why didn't the song Frank Ocean wrote for the "Django Unchained" soundtrack wind up on the "Django Unchained" soundtrack? Allow director Quentin Tarantino to explain.

"Frank Ocean wrote a fantastic ballad that was truly lovely and poetic in every way, there just wasn't a scene for it," Tarantino said in a statement (via Pitchfork). "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."

GQ initially reported Ocean's "Django" involvement.
