Beyonce, Rihanna and J-Lo feature in our list of the hottest female music videos of all time.

The videos are sure to get your pulses racing with some of the biggest names in pop performing their hits in outfits that leave little to the imagination.

Check out our top ten below and let us know which ones get you 'Crazy In Love', 'Down For Whatever' and 'Dirrty'.

'Crazy In Love'

Released in 2003, Beyonce's solo single 'Crazy In Love' firmly marked her departure from Destiny's Child and established the singer as one of the sexiest females in pop. The video didn't disappoint either as the star showcased her sultry dance moves alongside Jay-Z, who Bey has since gone on to marry.

Christina Aguilera

'Dirrty' by name, 'Dirrty' by video. That seemed to be the motto Christina Aguilera adopted for her unforgettable 2002 single. Directed by David LaChapelle, the video saw Christina cavort in a boxing ring along with several fellow scantily clad backing dancers in bikini and chaps. The video, which also featured Redman, sparked controversy across the globe, including in Thailand, where protests were held over the Thai-language posters that appeared in the video.

As you might expect from a song called 'S&M', Rihanna held nothing back when it came to shooting the video, which sees the 'Loud' star step into several different leather outfits while being tied up. Understandably, the video attracted controversy and was banned in 11 countries, despite RiRi claiming that it didn't contain as much nudity as her video for 'Umbrella'. The video's problems didn't stop there, however. David LaChapelle later sued Rihanna claiming the video had stolen its ideas from his photos, which had been published in several magazines, including GQ. In October 2011 the lawsuit was resolved and Rihanna was ordered to pay LaChapelle an undisclosed sum of money.
Britney Spears
'I'm A Slave 4 U'

Widely regarded as one of Britney's sexiest music videos, 'I'm A Slave 4 U' marked an emphatic shift in direction for Brit, as she went from teen star to sexy Princess of Pop. Produced by Pharell Williams of the Neptunes, the song stormed singles charts around the world, but it was the video that provided the real talking point as Britney was joined by a live snake. The singer was also taught how to belly dance for the video.
Nicole Scherzinger

As the title suggests, things get a little 'Wet' in the video for Nicole Scherzinger's 2011 single. Taken from her third album 'Try With Me', the video sees Nicole jump from shower scene to an empty swimmer pool in the space of a minute.
Nicki Minaj
'Super Bass'

Released in April 2011, Nicki Minaj's music video 'Super Bass' provided the perfect start to the summer, with the rapper playful splashing around in the sea with a bare-chested male model. Sporting a mermaid-inspired swimsuit and green hair, Nicki later slips into a stripey dress as she hits a club with friends. Check out the video and watch out for the pillow fight!
Kelly Rowland feat. The WAV.s
'Down For Whatever'

Swimsuit? Check. Leather swimsuit? Check. The music video for Kelly Rowland's 'Down For Whatever' lives up to its name, with the star cavorting around while two male dancers perform some breakdancing moves.
J-Lo feat. Lil Wayne
'I'm Into You'

J-Lo's video for 'I'm Into You' saw the singer roll around the beach with a hunky model in scenes reminiscent to her 'Love Don't Cost A Thing' era. The track was written by British singer Taio Cruz and featured rapper Lil Wayne.
Rihanna feat. Calvin Harris
'We Found Love'

'We Found Love' stormed the Vodafone Big Top 40 towards the end of 2011 when it was released as the first single off Rihanna's sixth album 'Talk That Talk'. The rather raunchy video sparked controversy before it was even unveiled after a farmer in Northern Ireland told RiRi off for stripping to the waist in his field.  The scene was cut from the final edit, but that didn't stop Rihanna from getting up close and personal with model Dudley O'Shaughnessy.
'She Wolf'
Shakira's 'She Wolf' became one of the summer anthems of 2009 following its release in July of that year. Featuring the howls of a wolf – or in this case, Shakira – the song's infectious chorus gave it chart success across the globe and made the Latin star an unexpected success story at the Glastonbury Festival in 2010. The video sees a caged Shakira thrusting her curves like a caged animal.
