16 Sexiest Music Videos Of All Time

Sexiest music videos of all time

We all know sex sells. Musicians have been playing this card long before Elvis Presley began gyrating his hips in front of swooning crowds. When MTV introduced the music video (remember when they were played on actual t.v.'s?) veterans like Madonna and Prince pushed the envelopes and shocked us with their NSFW videos. Since then, a bevy of artists have taken note. We've rounded up 16 of the sexiest and most memorable music videos of all time, from our perspective of course! 

1. Shakira | La Tortura

While many would argue that Shaki's "She Wolf" is by far sexier, "La Tortura" tops our list for the voyeuristic Alejandro Sanz and the playfulness between the two artists. 

2. Bruno Mars | Gorilla

Everything Bruno Mars does is sexy, and "Gorilla" is no exception. The atmosphere is so hot and sweaty in this video, give these folks an air conditioner STAT! 

3. Beyoncé | Partition

Sexy videos? You can't go wrong with Queen B. Even her silhouette is sexy.  

4. Luis Fonsi ft. Daddy Yankee | Despacito

We love that Justin Bieber helped catapult "Despacito" in the U.S., however, he needs to be put in check after being caught signing "blah, blah, blah," during a recent concert for his part in the song. Here is the original (and still sexy) version. 

5. Enrique Iglesias | Tonight (I'm Lovin' You)

Enrique suffers from chronic 'sad puppy-eye' syndrome, and we fall for it every single time. 

6. Michael Jackson | In The Closet

When you think of sexy, Michael Jackson doesn't necessarily come to mind. However, this 1992 video he did featuring model Naomi Campbell did a great job of heating up the screens. 

7. Rihanna | Work ft. Drake

We have a hard time understanding all of Rihanna's lyrics in this song, but what we do know is that she's werkin' it & twerkin' it like a boss! 

8. Lenny Kravitz | Again

Lenny Kravitz's soulful yearning and search for a lost love connection makes us want to watch this video 'again' and 'again'. 

9. Jennifer Lopez | I'm Glad

When it comes to JLo, there is no shortage of sexy videos. Sure, she showed off her ample assets in "Booty" with Iggy Azalea, but we think her homage to the 80's hit movie "Flashdance" is as sexy as it gets. 

10. Beyoncé | Sweet Dreams

Beyoncé makes our list again with "Sweet Dreams". We love this video for it's choreography and the fierce sexiness she exudes with every single step and toss of her hair. 

11. Janet Jackson | Anytime, Anyplace

This is Janet in her prime. This slow and sultry video shows that underneath her demure persona, Janet Jackson can certainly bring the heat. 

12. D'Angelo | How Does It Feel

We don't even know where to begin with this video. Enough said...

13. Maluma | Sin Contrato

He sure is a 'pretty, dirty boy', and we can't help but fawn over his bad boy ways in "Sin Contrato". 

14. demi lovato | cool for the summer

We're definitely cool with this video and with Demi's fierce body confidence. 

15. Mariah Carey | Honey

When Mariah finally let go of her modest persona, she really let loose. This iconic video, which was released in 1997, has influenced the generations that followed and was the catalyst for the R&B remix.

16. Shakira | Chantaje (Versión Salsa) ft. Maluma

Making our list again are Shakira and Maluma. These artists are hot in their own right, but together, they are on fire! This duo definitely has chemistry and it shows on screen. 

So, there you have it. Tell us, what did we miss? Are there sexier videos that we left out? Leave us a comment below.
