Behind every great man, there’s a great woman. Sometimes there’s even a great woman behind a great woman. That’s why we’ve taken the time to find the sexiest girlfriends of our favorite rappers on Instagram and give them the attention they deserve. You may never have heard of a lot of these women — but they’re all beautiful and talented in their own right.

Beyonce and Jay Z‘s On The Run tour has officially kicked off and we’re spending our days gorging on morsels from social media — we can’t get enough of the videos and photos everyone is posting from the power couple’s tour. The famously cagey couple has even been showing wedding footage, kept so tightly under wraps until now, to audiences. That inspired us to do some digging, and try to find out as much as we can about the most private public couple in history!
The concept of Beyonce is terrifying, never mind the woman. A powerhouse of fierceness, Beyonce has talent and intellect, and has managed to create an iconography for herself in a relatively short career that many struggle to achieve. When she’s not dropping surprise records or creating sublime music videos, she champions feminism and humanitarian causes, and is a momma to the adorable Blue Ivy. So it’s settled — there is literally nothing Beyonce can’t do.
These days, we’re not running short on girl power anthems. Our favorite pop starts from Katy Perry to Beyoncé are proclaiming the power of women, and bringing feminism to pop music in exciting new ways. However, it’s not all girl love in the world of pop. Competitiveness, arguments over men, jealousy and slut shaming are still sneaking their way into music… and the music of women. For a generation of females who claim to be liberated, there’s still a lot of girl-on-girl resentment going on, and we’ve put together a list of 20 songs, sung by women, that express blatantly anti-feminist sentiment.
If his music is to be taken as truth, Usher spends an awful amount of time in The Club. And we don’t mean “da club” the way it’s so casually referenced by other R&B artists, but The Club, which seems like the ultimate in nightlife experience. With a career spanning 20 years and 7 albums, Usher Raymond IV is a veteran and expert club goer. And there’re not all that much Usher hasn’t got up to in the familiar club, making the venue a true home away from home for himself.
There’s only one kind of fighting we truly encourage, and that’s dance fighting! We love a good old fashioned dance-off to settle a score, and music videos feature some true dance-battle gold. So put your fists away — all you really need to sort out an argument is a great body roll!
Our favorite pop babes are chameleonic. Taking on a variety of personas and changing up their look from video to video, we’re always surprised by the fantastical scenarios they manage to concoct. But sometimes pop music takes it back, and musicians find their aesthetic inspiration in the past. From Marie Antoinette inspired decadence to flapper chic to 50s perkiness, these pop stars are taking a trip down memory lane for some pretty cute costuming.
Motorcycles, like cars, have quite the phallic connotation. That’s why they make for a strong visual statement when used in music video. From futuristic Batman-style machines to classic shapes, the motorcycle is ubiquitous in pop music video. And what better way to adorn a motorbike than with a pop babe sprawled across it?
Music’s baddest babes are known for their risque, controversy causing outfits. From Rihanna‘s clothes that are so threadbare they’re barely clothes to Miley Cyrus‘ high cut leotards that threaten to betray the cooch, pop’s hottest young women are often less covered than not.
Spreading your legs mid-dance can pull even the most flexible hamstring, so there are times watching performances when a sexy spread eagle makes us cringe. From splits to booty drops, we sometimes feel like those spread eagles are more uncomfortable than they are hot. Not that we’re complaining — we really do appreciate the elasticity of our favorite performers and the lengths they’ll go to in order to give us a full crotch view.
