Another day, another reason to give Justin Timberlake your complete and undivided attention. Providing his eight-minute R&B power ballad “Mirrors” with snazzy visuals was a no-brainer – anyone with an ear for Billboard-friendly tunes will tell you that the song will soon be joining “Suit & Tie” at the top of the charts and for good reason, too. It boasts a cool blend of classic, soulful crooning and a contemporary beat. At least until the five-minute mark, at which point sh*t gets uber-experimenntal and trippy. In the best possible way, of course.
Ah, the video? My girlfriend tells me that old people getting romantic is adorable, so she’ll probably dig the sh*t out of this. But I won’t sit here and act like the final three minutes didn’t have me hitting rewind a few times. I could see a handful of successful gifs spawning from this video.
