Sexiest Music Videos of All Time
Though highly subjective, a list of the sexiest music videos of all time is probably one of the more fun subjects we’ve covered and one which we feel will bring a little spark of joy to your day. From short shorts to long, lingering stares; full-frontal nudity to suggestive camera angles, this collection of sexy film clips has it all.
Womanizer – Britney Spears
Britney has bared it all in this video. The perfect music video to start our list. Enjoy…
Destination Calabria – Alex Gaudino feat. Crystal Waters
Another prime example of what happened in the ’00s. A lot. Attractive, somewhat faceless women being generically sexy with musical instruments and some synchronised dancing yah, yah, yah roll the tape.
California Gurls – Katy Perry feat. Snoop Dogg
Whipped cream has never tasted the same since.
Wicked Game – Chris Isaak
Fun fact: The Hawaiian beach on which this famous sexy film clip was shot is no longer there, as it was covered by lava from a nearby active volcano shortly after the film clip was produced, making Chris Isaak and Helena Christensen’s nude frolicking only the second hottest thing to happen on the now-buried black sands of Kamoamoa.
Wrecking Ball – Miley Cyrus
If your entire career has been built on a foundation of teeny-bopping fans and good ole all-American-cotton-candy-praise-be-to-Jesus-daddy’s-cookin’-some-BBQ-praise-the-troops-God-bless-the-USA stylings, then you need to shift that image quicksmart after a certain age lest you be tossed on the same heap as Hilary Duff, LeAnn Rimes and the Olsen twins.
How, you may ask? Why, buy taking off all of your clothes and swinging on a wrecking ball and licking a hammer, duh. Say what you will, but Miley Cyrus killed Hannah Montana with this clip, and her career has thrived ever since.
Man! I Feel Like a Woman – Shania Twain
If Robert Palmer could have a swathe of sexy, sultry sirens with expressionless faces sway behind him as he sang, why couldn’t Shania have a few blokes? And then why not go one better than old Rob ever did and have a few outfits underneath a trenchcoat ready to be revealed with each verse? Why not indeed.
You should be sad – Halsey
M.I.L.F.$ – Fergie
As you might have guessed from the title and the very specific spelling of it, this song is about women who have had children but are still sexy and fun. Yeah! Chrissy Teigen and Kim Kardashian and Alesandra Ambrosio all star in it, and there are dance numbers and lots of lycra outfits. Fun!
Blurred Lines – Robin Thicke feat. T.I. & Pharrell
Though it quickly became one of the more grating songs of its time, whichever genius knew that anything with a naked Emily Ratajkowski would go gangbusters overnight was a bloody genius. Or just good at achieving the obvious. Either way, here’s a video of Emily Ratajkowski naked, with some singers singing; the mute button is on the bottom left of the player, FYI.
Dirrty – Christina Aguilera
This one caused quite the stir when it dropped in 2002, and both the song and the video hold up. If you were a kid in the 2000s, you’ll remember this as the radical undoing of Xtina’s “good-girl” image—and about the most explicit thing on MTV in 2002.
