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.
You may start sweltering soon – so take off your sweater, friends. It’s time to enjoy the 15 sexiest videos of 2014.
15. “Love Me Harder” by Ariana Grande ft. The Weeknd
Ariana took her sexy up a notch when she decided to let her hair down (for the first time ever, perhaps) and sensually writhed around in a dimly lit mansion.
14. “7/11” by Beyoncé
Because. Well, Beyoncé. (And Beyoncé in underpants.)
13. “Body Language” by Kid Ink ft. Usher and Tinashe
Kid and friends spent time (and presumably plenty of one dollar bills) at the Body Language Live Peep Show, a place where so many things jiggle and clap.
12. “Blank Space” by Taylor Swift
Crazy hasn’t looked this sexy since Beyoncé got a little loopy that one time in “Crazy in Love.”
11. “Burnin’ Up” by Jessie J ft. 2 Chaniz
As if the combination of latex, flames and a pool party wasn’t hot enough – things got extra steamy when Jessie decided to touch and rub up on some well-greased bods.
10. “Summer” by Calvin Harris
In his bathtub, in his bed, on the raceway, in the pool, popping champagne bottles – Calvin’s summer was crowded with beautiful (and barely clothed) women.
9. “Bang Bang” by Jessi J, Ariana Grande and Nicki Minaj
What Jessi, Ari and Nicki told us is true: we do need a bad girl to blow our minds. But when they look as good as this fierce trio – we’re not opposed to having our minds blown three times.
8. “I Luh Ya Papi” by Jennifer Lopez ft. French Montana
J.Lo decided to flip the script and objectify a bunch of sculpted dudes. Lucky for us, she also decided to objectify several pairs of her booty shorts.
7. “No Mediocre” T.I. ft. Iggy Azalea
T.I. made it very, very clear—both verbally and visually—that he doesn’t like hanging out with mediocre chicks.
6. “G.U.Y.” by Lady Gaga
Gaga got super randy and gyrated on several things like rafts and beds. She also simulated sexual intercourse alongside a dozen dancers and begged to be our G.U.Y. (girl underneath you).
5. “Anaconda” by Nicki Minaj
In one of the raciest videos of 2014, Nicki (and her buns, hon) went to work in the jungle, on a chair, at the gym and on Drake.
4. “First Love” by Jennifer Lopez
J.Lo put every twenty-something in the game to shame when she rolled her flawless physique around in the middle of a desert—making us wish that we were, well, a desert. Later, she decided to seduce a man—after watching him take a shower.
3. “Na Na” by Trey Songz
The WWE’s Bella Twins slapped Trey around in an underground personal gym filled with kink and pleasurable torment. Later, his boo dug her stilettos into his back and forced him to do freaky things during his exercise session. Trey, how do we get a membership to this place?
2. “Can’t Remember to Forget You” by Shakira ft. Rihanna
Sadly, Rihanna was fairly absent from the pop scene in 2014. But our favorite good girl gone bad made up for her absence by teaming up with Shakira to put cigars in their mouths and roll around on a daybed together.
1. “Booty” by Jennifer Lopez ft. Iggy Azalea
So much body oil. So much booty. So, so much J.Lo.
