3. 'Mirrors' (2013)
"Suit & Tie” is the first single from "The 20/20 Experience," but the 8-minute majestic “Mirrors” will go down as one of the album's most memorable track. Against a hand-clapping, heavy beat, Timberlake declares his love for his “other half,” who he foolishly almost lost. He declares his devotion in a way that never seems saccharine; instead his affection seems to have come through tribulation and is all the more valued. The layered synths, strings, and Timberlake’s multi-tracked vocals all create a shimmering wall of sound. Usually synthetic vocals lose any sense of emotion, but as Timbaland chants, “You are the love of my life” over and over as Timberlake riffs, it feels like a true blue dedication.
