Justin Timberlake cruises all the way to Number 1 today with Mirrors, his first solo chart topper since 2006 smash, Sexyback.
The US star, who performed at the BRIT Awards the week before last, was neck and neck with London quartet Bastille earlier in the week, before pulling away to end the week 13,000 copies clear of the competition at the Official Singles Chart summit today.
Mirrors is the ex-*NSyncer’s second solo Number 1 in the UK as a lead artist, and his fourth overall including hit collaborations 4 Minutes (with Madonna) and 2007’s Give It To Me (with Timbaland and Nelly Furtado). Mirrors is taken from Timberlake’s forthcoming third album, The 20/20 Experience, which is due for release later this month.
