New Song: Justin Timberlake – ‘Mirrors’

Published: Monday 11th Feb 2013 by Rashad

After his triumphant return to stage aboard tonight’s Grammys showing, it appears Justin Timberlake is ready to continue his chart conquest with new music lifted from his highly anticipated ‘The 20/20 Experience’.

With fans wearing ‘Suit & Tie’ to pieces on radio, JT shows off ‘Mirror‘ – a throwback to the Timbaland soaked sounds of his two previous efforts.  This, my friends, is what we’ve been waiting for:

Now, this is definitely more like it!  Yes, ‘Suit & Tie’ – a good song – was a grower, but this song is more along the lines of what we’ve come to expect from the dynamic duo of Timbaland and Timberlake.

Some may argue that the sound may be too reminiscent of hits like ‘Cry Me A River’, but that, we’ll argue, is the expense of one having a “signature sound”.  Either way, here’s hoping that ‘Mirrors’ is a bit more reflective of what the March-due ’20/20 Experience’ has to offer.

    Unlike “Suit & Tie” — which I like now, this song hit me instantly. Really great record. The only disappointing part : “You are, you are the love of my life” at the end. But what scared the most, is that it might be an outro for another song lol.

    Oh and btw, great classy and outstanding performance tonight !

      I completely agree with you!!!!! The “You are, you are the love of my life” threw me off. But I love that portion of the song disregarding that part.

    Slow down JT. Three new songs in a matter of weeks is a little excessive especially for an album with only 10 songs.

    The song is amazing though

  12. beyonce n rita whora flop together. February 11, 2013

    WOW! I thought it was beyonce making a comeback, with the whole superbowl and that. It seems her big so called comeback, was just to announce JT at the Grammy’s/ JT is soaring ahead: S and T is back at top 5 and the new song is trending on twitter. Not only is beyonce to scared to drop, but it does not seem like the GP even give a f***. Where is the buzz for the new single?

    Dream said he does not what has happened to her new singles and he is no longer allowed to speak about them. LOL LOL LOL they must be wack .

    Anyway, tonite proved that the superbowl was an over rated yesterday news and the beynonce is over. No even gave a s*** that she was at the Grammy’s. It was all about Rih.

      hat the hell does Beyonce have to do with this? I swear y’all find any reason/way to bring her up in every post.

      Beyonce is not going to over-saturate/overexpose herself by releasing a new single so soon.

      She has no stadium for this tour, that show in Poland is part of the festival. The concert tickets are at 22% sold out, she is going to be forced to cancel shows. She was never a Lady Gaga or Taylor Swift in touring but atleast she would sell 50% of the tickets within a month. I am so sad for her…

      Apparently the music is so basic that Columbia is refusing to send it in stores and radio. (Don’t want to talk too much they might figure out my identity). The reason is the advance Jay-Z requested for the project, Columbia has no faith in her so they are refusing to shell out a huge advance as they haven’t yet recouped the last advance from 4.

    Beyonce is already overexposed without a single out; the GP are sick of her. She brings nothing new. What is the point of doing an hbo docu AND oprah? Unless she has something major to confess to OPRAH, she is just further turning people away.

      Columbia turned down the singles that she submitted. Her and Jay Z are furious at Columbia (Please don”t quote me). She is forced to tour because Pepsi wants its share since they invested $10 million into the tour. Apparently the singles are everything she has already done.

      Apparently Jay-Z wants to prove a point that he can do better than Mathew Knowles but failing dismally. Nobody is talking about Superbowl even the urban blogs that are visited by hoodrats with no money have stopped talking about it. She wants to be as big as Lady Gaga and Rih but cannot measure up.

        Rolls eyes at a basic b**** talking about stuff they have no god given clue about. Lol at the delusional navy making up stories. Meanwhile diamonds tour tickets are on sale via groupon. Rihanna only has her singles and gaga had to release a ep to group sales for the fame with the monster and DIL has still outsold everything these two broads will ever do. Rihanna is just a gimmick. Always has been. Albums and singles always cheap as hell. Tour tickets always low in sales and prices. If rihannna is bigger than beyonce why hasnt she had an album pull DIL numbers? IF she plays these stadiums why hasnt she surpassed The IAM tour with loud? Why does she only have 7 to beyonce’s 17 grammy’s? Just Delusional I tell ya.

    I like it with first listen unlike S&T which I still don’t like.

    I have my doubts about this album though. First JT is moving too fast, I understand the need to keep the hype and interest going etc but its a little too fast. Let people digest it. Second, I’m wondering how this is different from his previous work. It was in 2005 that his last project was out (8 years ago) and where is the growth? We’ve heard a couple of songs from the 10 listed on the list and I have yet to hear something that he hasn’t done before.

    I’m being hard on him because I know he can do better. This album isn’t looking so bright for me.

      Grrrrrrl As an elder Mariah fan, don’t make me come for MC with this b*******. You got some nerve to ask ‘where’s the growrth’ when Mimi has been re-re-re-re-rehashing ‘We Belong Together’ and for 3 albums GURLBYE

        1. This post was about Justin Timberlake, not Mariah Carey so it was nice of you to try it.
        2. Mariah has been stuck on her 2005 sound and unless she chances her people she’ll be sounding like that until the end of time.
        3. No matter, this was about JT and whether you bring Mariah up or not, what I said about JT is STILL the same. 🙄

        Again, it was nice of you to try. 🙄

      • JOHNVIDAL February 11, 2013

        Are you serious??? Justin has only two albums in the market, Mariah has like 13. Mariah showed the biggest growth and change and risk for any pop artist in history in 1997 when she released Butterfly. I mean give me a f****** break. She has nothing left to prove, Justin has, and after 8 years and only two albums out, he could use a little bit more growth. Just that. But I think it´s a great song

      • ƸӜƷ MC ƸӜƷ February 11, 2013

        Everything you said @John.

        Justin has been gone for 8 years and he’s back with music that sounds eerily similar to the stuff he had out 8-10 years ago. That is not good.

    This is classic Justin. Yal got some nerve coming for Justin for sounding dated when yal faves entire career’s are yesterday. Justin came back with HIS sound that’s always been influenced by the R&B and pop LEGENDS. It’s nice to see someone come back and put out work that’s undeniably theres. There was no searching Youtube or using songs from this past year to get a hit.

    So much better than the dry first single. See? I give props when I have to. Still sounds a little bit corny, but that´s basically cos he´s voice is too weak. It also reminds us of Cry me a River a little bit. But yes, this is good, what he needs to be serving, cos he has only two albums out there and he has to prove some things still

        Miguel and Bruno Mars-Sting (I´m trying to forget Rihanna was there). Other good one was Alicia-Adam levine (and yes I know you hate both of them). The worst was Taylor Swift and that woman I never heard before called Miranda Lambert LOL I mean, what teh f*** was that? Those women can´t sing and their songs are horrendous, not even for 10 years old kids

    Okay, this sounds more like the Justine Timberflake I can stomach! With that said, it’s still not on the same level as Cry Me A River!

    I love how the controlled media just licked and lapped over his peformance and his new music like it was the best thing since Buddah. LOL, these fake ppl in the fixed media make me laugh! He did okay but I enjoyed the peformance better the 1st time I say it last year when BRUNO MARS did it! 🙁

    I actually like s and t and I like this. First off b4 u ppl try to s*** at jt…. learn how to count his last album came out in 06 so he’s been gone 7yrs not 8yrs. He don’t have anything to prove bcuz last I checked he’s getting radio spins,over 9millions views on youtube no video out,rave reviews from his grammy performance and his sitting high on the itunes and billboard charts. 1 monkey don’t stop a show…a few of u don’t like the songs but their million others dat do. I rather have jt over jb anyday of the week. Maybe if brandy or xtina etc would’ve been promoting like jt maybe their albums would’ve sold more then what they have. I bought both and I will be buying jt.
