“Mirror” is a song by American rapper Lil Wayne featuring American singer-songwriter Bruno Mars.
The second bonus track on the deluxe edition of Tha Carter IV (2011), was released to Urban contemporary radio stations as the sixth and final single on September 13, 2011, through Young Money, Cash Money, and Universal Republic Records. Dwayne Carter, Peter Hernandez, Phillip Lawrence and Ramon Owen wrote “Mirror”.
Owen also handled production as REO of the Soundkillers, and The Smeezingtons. The song leaked online a few days before the album’s official release in the United States. The track was produced three years before its release. Owen, with Mike Caren’s help, was able to get the track to several rappers, who rejected it.
Lil Wayne liked the song after hearing it, however, and his verses were added to Mars’ hook vocals already on the track.
