How excited am I for Justin Timberlake’s new album, The 20/20 Experience, on March 19? This excited.
While performing with Jay-Z, presenting awards and revealing new commercials Sunday night at the Grammys, Team Timberlake struck while the iron is hot releasing JT’s second look inside 20/20, the Timbaland-produced “Mirrors.” At eight minutes long, how the song’s presented should be interesting. Like Frank Ocean’s “Pyramids,” the record’s second half is the money shot and the portion that will probably result in getting more of the spins from a personal perspective. That said, there’s crossover appeal here throughout, capable of earning playing time on Top 40 stations as well as Hip-Hop/R&B airwaves once FM dials sink their teeth in.
The question lingering now is where is “Pusher Lover Girl”? That’s got the spring/summer two-step anthem written all over it.
