Madonna’s signature cone-bra and the Spice Girls’ infamous crop-tops were as far as “sexy” went back in the ’80s and ’90s. Today, its a rarity to see our favourite popstars dressed in any clothing at all. The likes of Rihanna, Miley Cyrus and Beyoncé have made “naked” the new “black”. Almost all artists and their music videos are accompanied with some kind of nudity or sexual element. Whether they are topless or twerking, these musicians have had us hot under the collar.
From boobs to the big, big booty, today’s music videos are heavily sexual and explicitly filled. We list the 10 sexiest and most explicit music videos from Rihanna’s Pour It Up to Nicki Minaj’s Anaconda…
10. Rihanna – S&M
Although the clip hardly featured any nudity, it did in fact contain scenes of “sexual bondage, dominance and sadomasochism”. The highly sexualised video was even restricted By YouTube and was banned in 11 countries.
9. Miley Cyrus – Wrecking Ball
Miley Cyrus is certainly one to use the shock-factor in her music videos. The clip that sent shockwaves through the music world saw the ex-Disney starlet swinging on a wrecking ball chain – naked. She also licks sledgehammers in scenes that will leave you confused and disgusted at the same time.
Unfortunately for the ladies, male artists rarely get hot and heavy in their music videos however they do treat fans to various women in the nude. And when we say nude, we’re talking bare-breast and skin-coloured G-strings…
7. Major Lazer – Bubble Butt
We’ve seen a lot of twerking in our time but it broke the record once the Bubble Butt video premiered. The raunchy visual is wacky, disturbing, surprising and extremely explicit.
6. Rihanna & Shakira – Can’t Remember to Forget You
Two of music’s sexiest stars hooked up for one of the most dreamy music videos of the year. Assets on display and leaving little to the imagination, Rihanna and Shakira get up, close and personal on a bed, smoke cigars and share a naked embrace.
5. Robin Thicke – Blurred Lines (featuring T.I & Pharrell)
The music video for one of the most successful hits of 2013 shocked all with its three topless ladies frolicking and goofing around. The track was even dubbed the most controversial song of the decade due to its lyrics that many regarded as “promoting rape culture”.
4. Beyoncé – Partition
Beyoncé gets down and dirty in the visual for Partition. Leaving little to the imagination, the diva goes from strip teasing on a piano, showing off her behind in an extremely skimpy outfit to licking and grinding on ropes.
3. Rihanna – Pour It Up
Rihanna’s no stranger to being nude and naughty. The Bajan beauty twerks her way through the extremely NSFW music video with minimal clothing. She twerks on water, twerks on her throne and twerks on the ground – it’s a serious twerk-fest!
2. Jennifer Lopez – Booty (featuring Iggy Azalea)
Fans are treated to close-ups of the ladies’ shaking, jiggling and twerking butts as well as plenty of girl-on-girl action. There’s a lot of sweaty, splashing and sexual shenanigans going on in the saucy clip starring two of the hottest girls in music.
1. Nicki Minaj – Anaconda
Nicki’s video for Anaconda was as racy and bum-tastic as expected. The super-sexy visual features the rapper’s infamous backside, curvaceous hips and titillating twerking skills.
