Remember watching MTV on a chunky TV in your parents’ basement, gawking at Britney Spears‘s sweaty orgy in “I’m a Slave 4 U”? Those were the good old days, eh?
It’s interesting to recall the music videos that have made a strong (and salacious) statement over the years. Of course, there was Madonna breaking all the rules in the ’80s. The ’90s saw no shortage of slow, sexy R&B scenes. The ’00s were teeming with pop stars eager to show some skin. And the ’10s are zeroing in on very specific body parts (Nicki Minaj’s “Anaconda,” Jennifer Lopez and Iggy Azalea’s “Booty”). No matter the era, sensual videos have long been a celebrated aspect of music – here are 63 of our favorites. Enjoy yourself at own risk – some of these are NSFW.
