5 Sexiest Music Videos of 2017
Zara Larsson and Ansel Elgort spice it up
Ah yes, 2017 was a pretty good year in music with new releases from Beck, St. Vincent, and Courtney Barnett. But now that the year is about to come to an end, let’s look back at what made the year one of the sexiest in music. And be sure to look for the official winner of the Sexiest Music Video 2017 in the PROVOKR Awards, coming the first week in January 2018.
Zara Larsson – “So Good”
Released at the beginning of 2017, Swedish singer Zara Larsson delivers the glittery goodness with its infectious hooks and pop sensibility. While rapper Ty Dolla $ign hits the perfect notes of hip-hop, Zara Larsson brings the sex appeal and the empowerment of her vagina, which, as the song suggests, is “so good!”
Zayn Malik & Taylor Swift – “I Don’t Wanna Live Forever”
From the soundtrack of Fifty Shades Darker, Zayn Malik and Taylor Swift share a sexy duet with “I Don’t Wanna Live Forever,” which was co-written by Swift. The music video, directed by Grant Singer, features the pair longing for each other through rain, paparazzi, and sultry hotel rooms.
Tove Lo – “Disco Tits”
This music video is anything, but “vanilla.” Tove Lo’s single “Disco Tits” is a whirlwind adventure through the American Southwest, as the Swedish pop star explores drugs and sex with a fuzzy yellow Muppet. As Tove Lo sings, “I’m sweatin’ from head to toe; I’m wet through all my clothes; I’m fully charged, nipples are hard; Ready to go.”
Mariah Carey – “I Don’t”
After all these years, Mariah Carey is still sexy AF. In the music video for “I Don’t,” Carey rolls around in the backseat of a car wearing voluptuous and lacy lingerie with a white wedding dress. She then moves to black latex and finally a red hot dress, as she burns the wedding dress, a symbol of imprisonment. Make no mistake about it, this music video, directed by Carey herself, is hot and sexy.
Ansel Elgort – “Thief”
Before he found success with the hit summer movie Baby Driver, Ansel Elgort released the single “Thief” in early 2017. The music video features Elgort seducing his real-life girlfriend Canadian ballerina Violetta Komyshan, as the 23-year-old singer/actor glides from the shower to the dining room and then to the bedroom in an effort to please Komyshan (and viewers). But not before he flexes his abs in front of a mirror, as he makes his way to the nighttime rooftops of New York City.
