We know you’ve been following VH1’s 100 Sexiest Artists countdown all week waiting to see who is at the top. Since we’re fellow perverts, we’re giving you a hint: this week’s Face-Off is between Rihanna and Beyonce. You’ll have to wait until tonight at 9/8C to see who is #1, but you can vote now to tell us if “SOS” or “Baby Boy” makes you want to open a window in the middle of winter more. We’ll keep the firemen on standby.
Rihanna “SOS” – The Island Princess turned full-fledged Barbadian sex siren when she dropped the video, and that booty, for her “Tainted Love” sampled hit off ironically titled album A Girl Like Me. The song became RiRi’s first (of 12!) #1 Billboard Hot 100 singles with good reason. How could you resist the soon-to-be Good Girl Gone Bad twerking off male dancers, in front of mirrors, on the beach, nothing but leg. Don’t worry, she was 18 when she shot the clip. Ogle away.
Beyonce “Baby Boy” – The Middle Eastern, dancehall-style track cemented the artist formerly known as Sasha Fierce’s solo career, topping the Billboard Hot 100 for nine consecutive weeks. And as hot as the single was, the video was more of a scorcher. Queen Bey did so much baby oiled-up shaking and half-naked writhing in bikinis throughout the “Baby Boy” video you almost forget she ever performed with two (sometimes three) other women.
