Who’s bringing sexy back to
the VMAs?

The MTV Video Music Awards bring together all genres of music, but this year’s videos are bringing the sexy to MTV.

The MTV Video Music Awards showcase the best of the best in the music industry, as well as up-and-coming artists. The award show will soon be celebrating its 30th birthday, and is still making as many memories as it did during its first show in 1984.

The 2013 Video Music Awards have nominees of all kinds, and this year has a good number of sexy songs. The kinds that make you fall in love and make memories.

So who has the sexiest songs of the year?


Calvin Harris feat. Ellie Goulding – “I Need Your Love”

If this isn’t the sexiest song of the year, it’s at least the sexiest video of the year. While the Calvin Harris and Ellie Goulding song is a dance tune, deep down it’s a love song. The video follows a couple, presumably on vacation, who are obviously in love and recording their life. Sometimes pure, unfiltered love can be the sexiest thing of all.


Mumford & Sons – “I Will Wait”

Mumford & Sons reminds us how music can be used to share emotion, any emotion. The band has showed us their sillier side and their serious side, but for “I Will Wait” they show us how thousands of people can be brought together by music. We’re reminded how one song can show us that, deep down, we’re all the same.


Rihanna feat. Mikky Ekko – “Stay”

Rihanna‘s music is always so powerful because we know so much about her past. The song is sexy — not in a traditional way, but in the way that it creates the raw emotion of wanting someone you know is wrong for you, something almost everyone has been through.

Justin Timberlake feat. Jay Z – “Suit and Tie”

There isn’t much that Justin Timberlake could do that wouldn’t make a sexiest list. His style of music, combined with his timeless style, has no doubt been on an endless amount of baby-making playlists. And adding Jay Z to any song is always a bonus.


Justin Timberlake – “Mirrors”

Timberlake may be the only one who could be on this list twice, but trying to decide which Justin Timberlake song is sexiest is a pretty impossible task. His song “Mirrors” is more of a ballad than “Suit and Tie” and follows a couple throughout the decades. It also shows a different side of Timberlake’s sexiness.
