Lil Wayne, ‘Mirror’ Feat. Bruno Mars – Song Review

Lil Wayne‘s highly-anticipated album ‘Tha Carter IV’ has leaked on the Internet like dripping water from a faucet. It’s a damn shame, but it is what it is.

One of the standout bonus tracks from the deluxe version of the album is the somber hymn ‘Mirror’ featuring pop’s go-to hookman Bruno Mars.

As the title suggests, Tunechi gets self-reflective on the REO-produced track in which he talks about his own personal struggles including his deadbeat dad. “Lookin’ at me now / I can see my past / Damn, I look just like my f—-n’ dad / Light it up that’s smoke and mirrors / I even look good in the broken mirror,” he raps.

Mars provides the yearning chorus, “Mirror on the wall / Here we are again / Through my rise and fall / you’re been my only friend,” which supplements the song’s theme. Granted, the crooner’s hook is the same sure-fire formula that has worked on previous songs like Eminem and Royce da 5’9″‘s current hit ‘Lighters,’ but it never gets old (at least to us).

‘Mirror’ is a sure-fire pop hit and it’s good to hear Wayne get introspective on his troubled past as he works on becoming a better human being. Interestingly, his thought-provoking words of self-reflection was inspired by the late Michael Jackson. “And no message could have been any clearer / So I’m starting with the man in the mirror… MJ taught me that,” he rhymes near the end of the song.
