New Video: Justin Timberlake – ‘Mirrors’

Published: Tuesday 19th Mar 2013 by Rashad

The promo train that is Justin Timberlake only continues to build steam with the release of his latest album’s second visual ‘Mirrors’.

The stunning accompanying video, said to be a tribute to the long-lasting love story of Timberlake’s grandparents, saw its release today shortly after its parent album ‘The 20/20 Experience’ hit record shelves to much fanfare.

Check it out below:


As fans may know, William and Sadie Bomar are Justin’s grandparents who, due to their respective illnesses, were unable to attend his wedding to actress Jessica Biel.  This clip acts as not only a great tribute to them, but an overall well put together visual that only reasserts what need not be – Justin is currently pop’s premier act.

We like.  Do you?

    Damn Sam that was a fast upload but I LIKE THE IDEO AND THE SONG.

    • Sterling Infinity (Prince Of Funk) March 20, 2013

      I loved the video! Made me think of my father

    • Nika March 20, 2013

      This was a REALLY NICE VIDEO. It made me smile the whole way thru enjoying the love story of his GrandParents and remembering the love of my decease GrandParents. Love endured all back then; something u don’t see as much now a days. Nice Justin!

      • Nika March 20, 2013

        ….oh and them mo’fo CB’s he had on was FREAKIN HAWT!!!

  2. Suicide Blonde March 19, 2013

    Sam on point, finally, today no post of Rihanna or Beyonce, greattttttt, the video is cute just like him, it’s inspired by our love story Sam not about his grandparents, i love my hubby.

    • beyonce rihanna support act on stadiums tour March 19, 2013

      That is because Sam has caught wind Of Beyonce scrapping her album altogether and it might not even come out, not to mention, he has heard, loud and clearly the backlash Beyoce got fro black and white alike for the 2 garbage singles she put out on sun. Even Radio1 DJ Scott Mills, from the UK asked is beyonce’s new singles ” a joke”?

      Add to the fact, that Rih ( the one Beyonce told to bow down ) is slaying and her Docu is coming to a major network, Fox as appose to HBO like crappy flop BEYONCE.

    • beyonce rihanna support act on stadiums tour March 19, 2013

      Add to the fact, the already gold US smash single, Pour it up, will be Rih’s new single on April and he know sthat URBAN JAM WILL SLAY THE F*** OUT OF BEYONCE. HE HAS NOT GOT S*** TO Say.

    • beyonce rihanna support act on stadiums tour March 20, 2013

      Hey Dude,

      The reason why JT new video is ice cold, is cos JT hired Floria Sisimondi to direct this Vid . The Italian Director , directed David bowie’s new video.

      AND black male singers wonder why they DO NOT SELL.

      • Matthew Charlery-Smith March 20, 2013

        Black male singers what? They need Italian directors to get sales? Does that make sense?

        By the way, Usher’s “Dive” video and song are amazing.

        Well done JT.

    • POP ROYALTY ( RUDE BOY) March 20, 2013

      B****** you are all will ALWAYS Be OBSESSED with one thing for the rest of your Lives :

      R I H A N N A.

  3. toohotfortv March 19, 2013

    I don’t even like JT like that but i have to say this video is very well done.. i especially enjoyed the last segment.

  4. BRitchie March 19, 2013

    Overrated F**

  5. Mother Monster March 19, 2013

    Wonderful Video & its so nice not having a beyonce or rihanna post today it seems so peaceful on here today

  6. Zulu March 19, 2013

    …again much like the album this video is good but not as good as it thinks it is. With that said it still shits on most of the music being released by JT’s contemporaries – see Usher, Trey Songz..

    • beyonce rihanna support act on stadiums tour March 19, 2013

      Amazing video. Love that he is working with Tom Ford – the designer who uses Rih for inspiration. Love the sharp, cooled simplistic narrative. And you winder why black singer trey, CB, Miguel , neyo and usher flop? All they do is ghetto videos, set in clubs with bunch of yella bones. Where is the artistry in that?
      There is no artistry among black singer outside of Rihanna. The videos are wack, teh songs are wack, the clothes are wack. How comes the black singers do not work David Fincher, Teery Richardson, Tom Ford etc like JT? And they wonder why they flop.

      • Umm March 19, 2013

        what the hell does clothes have to do with music? you’re such a damn dumbass that hurt me to fathom how anyone could come up with the s*** that you do. JT is and has always been a swagger jacker. Just like his predecessor before him, his talent relies on other BLACK artist that you talk down about. It’s funny how suit and tie can be played on pop and urban radio but climax, adorn, heart attack (all grammy nominated songs) can’t? Climax was named one of the best songs of 2012. So tell me how is it tired. Or why isn’t JT’s music tired since it’s basically what other black artist have done years ago? Just stop talkin like you know what’s up because you’re not black you don’t have to deal with certain discrimination that we have to.

      • UM March 19, 2013

        A. Don’t use my name in any capacity on this blog. I am the reigning “UM” of this blog so respect that, bow down b******

        B. I wish this BeyRihStadiumblahblahblah f***** would shut the f*** up. Go have a beer and sit the f*** down you piece of garbage.

    • POP ROYALTY ( RUDE BOY) March 20, 2013

      B**** “CLIMAX” shits on The OUT-DATED “S&T” and “Mirrors” COMBINED.

    • Umm March 20, 2013

    I’m sorry but I busted out laughing when I seen Justin pop out and start dancing. That s*** was pure comedy, but I still love the song tho.

  13. miss marvel March 19, 2013

    This is truly beautiful and amazing 🙂

  14. WizKey March 19, 2013

    Justin is literally slaying everyone in music right now. You all better rent yourselves out as shields for your faves, but he’s knocking them all down one by one. Justin’s team is TOP NOTCH and knows how to execute a comeback.

  15. King B>Rihanna March 19, 2013

    now these is a f****** music video…take notes..I miss the days when people actually treated videos like the visual representation for an audio track like MJ,JJ, MC,Missy and so on.

    • Yasmin March 20, 2013

      MJ and Missy videos though, highlight of my childhood.

    • RoyalKev March 20, 2013

      Really, Mariah Carey videos?

    Ciara and Iggy Azalia new single were released in the USA TODAY. WHERE ARE THEY ON ITUNES?

  18. beyonce rihanna support act on stadiums tour March 19, 2013

    On Sunday, the singer Beyoncé released a new single, a growling, mechanized thing that strongly urged those she deemed lesser to bow down.

    On Monday, Rihanna, the hip-cocking Barbadian with more number-one hits than fingers on her two hands, did not submit. Granted, her first of two concerts at Air Canada Centre did begin with the singer on her knees, her body draped in a long, thin black robe. She shortly disappeared, returning with a stage full of posing dancers and a band that included flash guitarist Nuno Bettencourt.

    We’re going to rock the building tonight,” Rihanna said. And she did do that.

    She hit the multilevel stage a good hour after her appointed set time, but excuses or explanations from her were as likely a prospect as finding empty seats in the electrified arena. After all, her recent album is Unapologetic, an adjective and a state of mind from the brash lady with heavy eyelids and heavier swagger.

    With her golden-brown hair swooped long to the right, the 25-year-old singer sashayed in thigh-high black boots to the deep-bottomed, rocked-out hip hop of Phresh Out the Runway, followed by the aggressive, rugged sexuality of Birthday Cake.

    “Anybody in the building have my new album?” Rihanna asked early on, showing no signs of the laryngitis that caused her to cancel two shows of her current Diamonds Tour in the United States last week. The question about her album was no doubt rhetorical: Unapologetic debuted at No. 1 on the Billboard 200, though sales dropped sharply in the following weeks. RiRi is more about the singles than the (seven) LPs.

    Some of the hits were offered, including the skittering island-pop sing-along What’s My Name? and the highly recognizable Umbrella.

    Furnaces blasted fire during Jump, raising the temperature for a wobbling smash of electro-rock that was hot enough – “My saddle is waiting” – already.

    Rockstar 101 was not complete without Rihanna’s air-guitar lesson and an outro of the Who’s Won’t Get Fooled Again (complete with the same lighting pattern used by that unfoolable English band).

    Costumes changes happened, often preceded by the disappearance of Rihanna by way of hydraulic stage-parts that lowered the superstar into the stage.

    The 100-minute thrill ride included a two-tune encore, comprised of the bluesy ballad Stay – the woman can sing – and the sky-gazing, swirling, upswooping single Diamonds.

    Nearly 10 years ago, a teenaged Robyn Rihanna Fenty auditioned for (and was signed to a multi-album deal by) Jay-Z, now the husband of Beyoncé. That singer’s just-out single Bow Down/ I Been On can be interpreted as a (wacky) warning shot to younger artists with usurping ideas. Rihanna’s star is hot and still on the rise – Beyoncé’s Sasha Fierce is now Sasha Fears.

    POOR DATTA

    • beyonce rihanna support act on stadiums tour March 19, 2013

      This comes from the NUMBER 1 newspaper in CANADA.

      BEYONCE, BOW OUT GRACEFULLY, BEFORE YOU ARE FORCED OUT!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    • Vandrea March 19, 2013

      I’m tired of you. All these long ass, pressed essays you write, and I bet most readers here probably don’t do more than glance at them for a nanosecond before dismissing you and moving onto the next comment. You’re a troll, a spammer and worst of all boring. No one cares, little girl. Seriously, shut up.

      • beyonce rihanna support act on stadiums tour March 19, 2013

        You chose to read it AND get pissed…..soI must be doing something right. Anyway, I did not write this, it was written by Canada’s LARGEST paper.

        Not my problem if the know beyonce is out.

      • JER March 19, 2013

        You tired? Then take a nap b**** and lie your ass down

        @Vandrea you cared enough to respond to her LOL!! Dont get mad cuz Rih is stomping all over your fave without any talent to go by. HA!

  19. beyonce rihanna support act on stadiums tour March 19, 2013

    According to magazines from Canada, Beyonce ( in the wake of Rih ) hs gone from Sasha Fierce to Sasha FEARS

    His style was better for Justified. The greased back 50s look just isn’t working.

    Beyonce Rihanna support act on stadium tour:
    honey don’t come for Miguel.
    He just won a Grammy. I have a feeling he will
    Go on to do big things with his fine ass.

    • beyonce rihanna support act on stadiums tour March 19, 2013

      Sorry byt Miguel is a crazy looking f**.

    • JER March 19, 2013

      Don’t act like people even win Grammy’s anymore. You GET Grammys like it’s another thing. Rihanna has 7 and Mariah Carey has 5 and it took her 15 years to get 5 too. Ch… BeYAWNce has almost as many as the Queen of Soul. BeYAWNce does not equal Queen, King, or Soul. Aretha Franklin………BeYAWNce……. i don’t see the similarities. Now if it was Jody Watley and BeYAWNce, I see the similarities.

  24. King B>Rihanna March 19, 2013

    haters always do the uttermost…..Lovely JT since it said new video JT not Rihanna nor Beyonce.

  25. beyonce rihanna support act on stadiums tour March 19, 2013

  26. MISHKA March 19, 2013

    Although it seems pretty clear that TGJ is getting a check from all this JT promo, this is a great song and video.

    Actually, the chorus sounds very N’SYNC. I could almost visualize JC Chasez singing passionately against some wall “I tell you baby it was easy…”. Yes, I miss N’sync.

    And I call it now: Matthew Morrison on the Glee-mix!

  27. Absolved March 19, 2013

    This is the comeback of the ages. Justin is literally slapping b****** in the mouth and rendering everyone who became prominent during his hiatus “elementary.” It’s like he saw what a joke popular music had become in his time off and decided to come to show people that they don’t have to settle for dumb s*** like “Tik Tok” and “Harlem Shake.”

  28. JER March 19, 2013

    I’m loving the album. I’ve been listening to edits of all the songs that really makes them so much better. I love me some Justin. Yal can keep Miguel and Frank Ocean, I’ll take my Justin. Yal just STEAMPRESSED this white boy has more soul, hotter beats, better vocals, and more attention than yal beysic “R&B” generic ho’s. Go buy another copy of Searching 4 MoreSales

  29. Lovebird March 19, 2013

    Video is ok, I still feel this album is more hype than substance. Oh well, good for him though, this is a comeback like no other, people better take notes.

  30. Lovebird March 19, 2013

    And I wonder why people are even coming for Usher, Usher is all chilled and relaxed, he has his Diamond certified album and he doesn’t care.

    And besides, if Usher wanted, he could end Justin Timberlake, he has the perfect dossier for him, and that dossier is called Justin Bieber, and you haters will deal.

    • Sterling Infinity (Prince Of Funk) March 20, 2013

      Who brought Usher into this post?

  31. MISHKA March 19, 2013

    People are killing me lol. JT is not coming for no R&B act, y’all leave Miguel alone.

    He’s coming for Bruno Mars and that makes me sad actually because he deserves at least one Grammy for his latest album.

    But most importantly, JT is keeping Bieber away from older audiences. I knew he didn’t take too lightly the boyfriend/girlfriend rip-off. So s/o to Bieber for bringing Justin back.

    • Mark111 March 19, 2013

      Jb is to JT is like Chris Brown is to Usher. JT and Usher got too relaxed and the new cats came for their crowns. I’m not sayhing that the new cats took it, but they for sure made Usher and JT bring it. Same with Rihanna is to Beyonce. But the young aren’t as good LIVe as the Kings and Queen.

  32. Lovebird March 19, 2013

    LOL If Justin Timberlake is coming for Bruno Mars then he’ll fail miserably. Unorthodox Jukebox is 10x better than what Justin Timberlake has given us. Justin Timberlake is coming for Justin Bieber because Bieber went urban pop like Justified and was successful at it.

    Justin Bieber is the better, much fresh version of Justin Timberlake and you’ll deal. They both however cannot touch Bruno Mars. Bruno Mars shits on all these basic male artists and you’ll deal.

    • DD1G March 20, 2013

      “Justin Bieber is the better, much fresh version of Justin Timberlake and you’ll deal. ”

      LOL. Bye.

      …and next Tuesday, when those Hits receipts are tallied, will prove that JT can indeed come and conquer both those Bieber and Bruno dorks. Those two are merely seat fillers. JT owns lane they’ve been swimming in.

      • Lovebird March 20, 2013

        Why so much hate for Bruno Mars though? He’s an amazing singer/songwriter and has all but dragged every single one of your favs to FLOP AND BASIC BOULEVARD.

        Don’t hate him just because he makes good music, it’s not his fault he’s so amazing.

    • Sterling Infinity (Baby Girl!) March 20, 2013

      Usher go 2 Bed!

  33. Lovebird March 20, 2013

    This album will do good numbers but if we’re keeping it 100% honest, Bruno Mars>Usher>Justin Bieber>Justin Timberlake>Frank Ocean>the other basic RnB FLOPS (Miguel, Trey Flopz, R Kelly, Marcus Canty, Connor Maynard, Joe Jonas..etc)

    • Lovebird March 20, 2013

      I forgot to add Fistopher Brown on the RnB FLOP list.

  34. yoya_Sschur March 20, 2013

    i have to admit thata justin has suprised me with this video!!!! i have never been a justin fan, i personally prefer bruno mars but still, this video and song shows a little of old justin.. the video is amazing like the ones from future/love/s**/sounds. an original video i must say… good for him!

  35. Sterling Infinity (Prince Of Funk) March 20, 2013

    I really dig the video. Great job!

  36. TBT March 20, 2013

    LOL the stans of those sissy pop chicks can’t stand the fact that Justin is SLAUGHTERING them and making them look silly by comparison. The year belongs to 20/20. The only artist who will give JT a run for his money is Eminem this summer. The rest of them are paupers.

  37. Matthew Charlery-Smith March 20, 2013

    Good video. It’s very important to include the elderly in Pop culture. They are the foundation upon which all we have was built. Kudos to Justin for incorporating their story to his artistry. Some other (but lesser) artists need to have something else to depict in their artistry except themselves!!!

    I don’t love the song, it’s too long. The repetitiveness of the last half is too much. The beat-boxing was also too “Cry Me a River” like and should have sounded more updated for this new era. His voice has improved. It’s thicker, heavier and more resonant.

    Well done Justin for pushing yourself and not going for gimmicks and cliches.

  38. Jackieyonce March 20, 2013

    RihannaNavy f*** off already and go and suck that H** effected puss of your bloody big forehead fave. This is Justin Timberlake’s Post! Not Rihannas or Beyonce. So you thin flat ass f****** need to shut the f*** up already. I’m gonna be REAL! in this era Bruno Mars>>Justin T>>>Miguel>>>Adam Levine>>>>>>>>

  39. Jackieyonce March 20, 2013

    As for this stadium dude F**…. One day you will lose your eyesight and you will regret hating on people that never ever hated on you. LOVERBIRD is a lonely ass gay that has no life. Ignore this B**** she’s a pyscho… ANYWAYS Rihanna<<<<<BeYonce! You b****** will deal.

      STFU h**, no one cares about what you have to say..

  40. Ayo March 20, 2013

    Glad JT is bck and all, but I’ve felt really underwhelmed by him this era S&T was really mediocre first single, preferred it when R. Kelly did it. I only really like about 5 songs off the current album, “T.V.”, “S.B.”, “S.C.”, “Mirrors”, and “P.L.G.”. And tbh this video really didn’t move me, plus he sploit it for me when he popped up with those tired steps that he’s been using since Justified. All that said I appreciate the fact that he is giving solid music compared to the garbaged that has been out for a minute.

  41. The Ice Queen March 20, 2013

    This beat sounds a little bit like Cry me a River during the verses.

    The Arctic Blast.blogspot.com

  42. Music Soul Harmony March 20, 2013

    JER, u say the dumbest s***. Justin had more soul Than Miguel??
    Yeah right. Miguel’s range and resonance alone shits on JT’s.
    Usher’s does too.
    Justin’s voice isn’t bad but as far as soul goes Miguel def
    Has that better. Besides, Justin uses too much falsetto.
    It’s no high note that’s ever in between.
    As for this song, it’s not one of my favorites. Sounds like a song
    On Justified’s B side. I do like Pusher Love Girl tho.

  43. RoyalKev March 20, 2013

    Some parts were pretty cool! I see that a lot of thought went into this and that alone gets my respect. It didn’t blow me away, I’d be too bored to watch this video twice. Still this concept looks great on paper and JT got his point across. There’s no stopping JT, he’s on his way to having a great year. At the same time, it’s nice to be privileged. His promo is strong and that in today’s music world that guarantees that his audience will be receptive. I am glad however, that this may steer undeserving hype away from the pesky Bieber!

  44. Faith March 20, 2013
