Mirrors was the second single from Justin Timberlake’s 2013 album The 20/20 Experience. The first, Suit & Tie, was released in January. Mirrors was quickly released a few weeks later and entered the chart at Number 28 before rising to Number 4.
Tiumberlake then performed the song at The Brit Awards and it suddenly caught on in a big way and it leaped to Number 1 where is stayed for three weeks altogether.
It enjoyed eight weeks in the Top 10 and it didn’t leave the Top 100 until October that year.
The song is quite unusual in that it was over 8 minutes long and did not, at first, have a radio edit, meaning that radio stations had to fade it out.
By November 2016 the single had combined sales of 929,000.
In January 2018 the OCC announced that combined sales were just over 1 million.
