The award-winning director released a statement to FUSE explaining why he cut Frank’s song from the soundtrack stating:
“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.”
We completely respect Quentin’s decision. Sometimes one must possess the insight to say no.
