Some of our favorite pop stars weren’t timid about turning up the heat in their music videos this year. Nicki Minaj steamed up the jungle (and other things) when she gave Drake a rousing lap dance, J.Lo yachted with a dozen chiseled papis—and went cheek-to-cheek with Iggy Azalea, and T.I. vacationed in Rio with a gaggle of beauties (none of whom were mediocre, of course). 2014 was a memorable year for sexy videos, indeed.

We can always rely on music to give us little nuggets of wisdom…and sometimes to say utterly crazy things. Lyrics are so entertaining because sometimes they articulate exactly how we feel, and sometimes they’re so far out there they make us think, get mad, or at the very least laugh and go, “WTF?” 2014 was filled with lyrics that filled all categories, and we’ve got the best of the best (and worst) here for you.

Iggy Azalea had a pretty dope 2014, you guys.
