‘Watermelon Sugar’ by Harry Styles
‘In Watermelon Sugar’ is an American postmodern post-apocalyptic novel by Richard Brautigan, published in 1968. Harry Styles’ “Watermelon Sugar” sounds much more inviting. This is his latest single from his upcoming album, ‘Fine Line’. Best of all, you’ll be able to confidently belt out the chorus: “Watermelon sugar high / Watermelon sugar high / Watermelon sugar high / Watermelon sugar high / Watermelon sugar”. Remember: Confidence is sexy.
‘Tease Me’ by Cardi B and Bruno Mars
When two Grammy winners collab, the expectations are sky high. Luckily, this pair delivered with this hit duet released in February 2019. ET Canada called it “seductive.” 'Rolling Stone' called it “flirtatious.” USA Today said it was “steamy.” Today, we declare it certified sexy.
'Feeling Myself’ by Nicki Minaj (feat. Beyoncé)
Trying to get psyched up for the big night? Wondering if you can stay awake til 9 p.m. -- let alone midnight? You need this track now and forever. Put it on repeat and you’ll be ready to go in no time.
‘Earned It ('Fifty Shades of Grey')’ by The Weeknd
The Weeknd’s 2014 breakout single has “Fifty Shades of Grey” right there in the title. “Earned It” is exciting and inviting. We’d like to make a case for you to also add “Often”, the Weekend’s sinisterly sexy single from 2015. We’d share some lyrics to support our case but they have been deemed too sexy for this courtroom. Adjourned.
‘Body Party’ by Ciara
We just saw Ciara host the American Music Awards but you may know her best for her Grammy-winning music. Straight from the Atlanta scene, this singer/dancer/model is known for her sexy looks and racy videos. Here’s a taste of the lyrics from 2013’s “Body Party”: “You can't keep your hands off me / Touch me right there, rock my body / I can't keep my hands off you / Your body is my party”. Yeow! Sounds like there are no hats or balloons at this bash.
‘Love On The Brain’ by Rihanna
“And you got me like, oh,” is the opening line of this song and maybe the most succinct description ever of sudden love. Songwriters Fred Ball and Joseph Angel drew inspiration from Prince and Al Green for this hit. Co-written by Rihanna, this was the fourth single from her eighth studio album, ‘Anti’, in 2016.
'Nice to Meet Ya' by Niall Horan
Let the swagger of Horan’s latest single inspire your night. “I like the way you talk, I like the things you wear / I want your number tattooed on my arm in ink, I swear,” are the opening lines. Here’s some real talk. Don’t get impromptu ink of someone’s number when you get drinksy on New Year’s Eve. Sleep on it. Horan thought “Nice to Meet Ya” was such a great name that he’s also using it for his upcoming tour: the “Nice to Meet Ya” tour. Ya.
‘God Is A Woman’ by Ariana Grande
“You, you love it how I move you / You love it how I touch you / My one, when all is said and done / You'll believe God is a woman”. Wow, Ariana Grande is really talking up her game in this hit from 2018. While you’re at it, go ahead and add Grande’s 2016 collab with Nicki Minaj “Side To Side” to your playlist.
“Lover” by Taylor Swift
This song is about lovers, it says so right in the title. Try declaring “I take this magnetic force of a man to be my lover,” just like Swift does in the lyrics and then see where the night takes you. (Hint: It’s going to take you to 2020.)
'Lady Marmalade' by Christina Aguilera, Lil' Kim, Mýa and Pink
This first became a No. 1 hit in 1974 for the American girl group Labelle, featuring Patti LaBelle. In 2001, “Lady Marmalade” was re-recorded for the “Moulin Rouge” soundtrack. It spent five weeks at the top of the charts. The line "Voulez-vous coucher avec moi ce soir?" certifies this disco jam as sexy, no matter what year it is.
