The hottest songs of 2018 weren’t just popular — they were sexy. From watching people explore their sexuality to hooking up in a bathroom, here are the seven sexiest songs of the year:

“One Kiss” by Dua Lipa x Calvin Harris

Dua Lipa has had one hell of a year coming off the success of her first album and collaborating with the biggest names in the industry. One of those names is DJ and producer Calvin Harris. “One Kiss” peaked at No. 2 on Billboard’s Hot Dance/Electronic chart, solidifying it as one of the grooviest songs of the year. The disco beats mask mask the sultriness of the verses, but the chorus grabbed everyone’s attention. Sexiest lyric:Something in you, lit up heaven in me / The feeling won’t let me sleep”

“Filthy” by Justin Timberlake

J.T. is no stranger to singing about sexiness. He did bring sexy back, you know. In “Filthy,” Timberlake speak-sings in the verses, so the chorus is where his signature smooth vocals make everyone swoon and a little hot. One peek at the lyrics shows a multitude suggestive lines like “And what you gonna do with all that meat?” Sexiest lyric: I said, put your filthy hands all over me / And no, this ain’t the clean version”

“Make Me Feel” by Janelle Monae

Janelle Monae can sing, act and dance, but most of all she has more sex appeal in her pinky toe than some artists have in their whole body. “Make Me Feel” demonstrates that the best. The song could have been off and Prince album and the video even emulates that of the late singer. Her vocals are so seductive it can entrance anyone who listens. Sexiest lyric:Mess me up, yeah, but no one does it better”

 “Curious” Hayley Kiyoko

Off her debut album, Expectations, which was released in March, “Curious” talks about Kiyoko’s love interest’s boyfriend and how some women don’t know what they want. In the song, she sings to her lover and if the guy she’s seeing satisfies her like Kiyoko does. The music video brings the song to life and even features a steamy bathroom sex scene with the woman she likes. The video is a must watch for anyone looking for some sexy streaming. Sexiest lyric:I’m just on the floor, I’m like a model / Been looking through the texts and all the photos”

“Come For Me” by Sunflower Bean

The sultry song sounds straight from the ’60s rock era with guitar features that will make you want to move — even between the sheets. The young trio even has a counterculture vibe to them, which is even more present in “Come For Me.” Pay close attention to the lyrics because there are a lot of risque lines in this tune. Sexiest lyric: If you got the balls to meet me in the alley / When I hit, I hit hard” 

“Love Lies” by Khalid and Normani

If there is anything smoother than Khalid’s beats it’s his lyrics. The superstar paired up with former Fifth Harmony member Normani to deliver a passionate, groovy song that penetrated the top-10 on Billboard’s Hot 100. The song tells the story of lovers who want to commit but need to know where each other is at. The song is relatable, which makes it even sexier. Sexiest lyric: Waste the day and spend the night / Underneath the sunrise” 

“El Baño” by Enrique Iglesias ft. Bad Bunny

Latino rapper Bad Bunny has been on the rise in the U.S. this year. He has collaborated with some of the biggest names, including Jennifer Lopez and Drake. In this song, he teamed up with the Spanish-singing artist Enrique Iglesias in “El Baño,” a provocative single about hooking up in the bathroom of a bar. (Make sure to watch the video in private). Sexiest lyric: “Let’s go to the bathroom / Where nobody can see”
