The sexy has been brought back indeed!
After a six-year hiatus, Justin Timberlake has returned! His new album, The 20/20 Experience, has ears all over the world ready to listen. His latest single, “Mirrors” is a personal favorite of mine, especially the album version, which is 8:04 (listen to it here). It is currently #25 on the US Billboard Hot 100 chart. This song is most definitely a product of the JT/Timbo musical genius.
In the song, which has an up-tempo beat, JT sings to his love, realizing that she is his other half . He sings:
Cause I don’t wanna lose you now
I’m lookin’ right at the other half of me
The vacancy that sat in my heart
Is a space that now you hold
Show me how to fight for now
And I’ll tell you baby, it was easy
Comin’ back into you once I figured it out
You were right here all along
He then goes on to say:
It’s like you’re my mirror
My mirror staring back at me
I couldn’t get any bigger
With anyone else beside of me
And now it’s clear as this promise
That we’re making two reflections into one
Cause it’s like you’re my mirror
My mirror staring back at me, staring back at me
Sources say that the inspiration for the track is Timberlake’s wife, Jessical Biel.
The video for the track had it’s world premiere on March 22, 2013 during The CW’s hour-long special of the release party for the new album. Watch it below.
