HOT STUFF! Justin Timberlake - Mirrors
Usually when a super star announced a new single, the music world is a buzz, but unfortunately for us, Justin Timberlake's first single Suits & Tie from his new yet to be released CD, The 20/20 Experience, was a bit of a let-down. It wasn't quite what we expected. Not bad, but not your typical JT song. Then we heard his new song, Mirrors. AWESOME!! When Justin Timberlake announced his comeback last month, the song many were immediately drawn back to was 2002's 'Cry Me A River'. A ballad that not only secured his solo star status, it also achieved a rare feat for a male artist such that it boosted his street cred despite its salacious lyrics about you-know-what. He's essentially repeated the trick on 'Mirrors' which, despite musical shifts in the intervening 11 years and the absence of a cheating girlfriend, still manages to sound remarkably fresh. "It's like you're my mirror/ My mirror staring back at me," he tells his lover over head-nodding Timberland beat boxing and grandiose strings, before spilling his guts about how he should never have left them in the first place. The result could only be better if it was dedicated to you-know-who. Listen to the fantastic new song, HERE!
