The 17 Beachiest Music Videos for Your Fun in the Sun

From LFO to Beyoncé, we're drunk in love with these sandy videos

1 / 17

Fifth Harmony, 'All in My Head (Flex)'

Perhaps the hottest video to come out of 2016 so far, Camila, Dinah, Ally, Lauren and Normani (a.k.a. Fifth Harmony) cool off by the beach because spending the night dancing away with Fetty Wap.

2 / 17

Dierks Bentley, 'Somewhere on a Beach'

Sexy AND funny, Dierks Bentley forgets all his cares while he's "sippin' on somethin' strong" somewhere on the beach. Take that, problematic ex!

3 / 17

Jessica Simpson, 'I Think I'm in Love with You'

We're taking it back now, and Jessica Simpson can always be reliable for some fun in the sun. The 1999 music video captured the carefree vibes of growing up in the height of pop.

4 / 17

Britney Spears, 'Sometimes'

It's only appropriate that we explore more music videos from 1999. Britney Spears is a little more self-reflective, but still super sunny. And she's, like, one of those only people who could wear all-white to the beach.

One Direction, 'What Makes You Beautiful'

Bringing it back to the future now, One Direction's "What Makes You Beautiful" is only five years old, but it's a 1D classic. Ugh! The good ol' days!

6 / 17

Katy Perry, 'California Gurls'

Nothing in Katy Perry's "California Gurls" is real...unless you want it to be. But the candy-coated beach looks inviting and appetizing. Plus, Perry's cupcake bikinis will go down in history.

7 / 17

Son Ga-In and Jo Hyung-woo, 'Brunch'

"Brunch" is less fantasical and wayyyy more romantic. The Korean singers spend a cute day in New York City, and what better way to end a date than by taking a walk on the beach at Coney Island?

8 / 17

Beyoncé feat Jay Z, 'Drunk in Love'

Beyoncé and Jay Z took to the shore in Florida to get steamy in the "Drunk in Love" video. On the same album, Bey went to Coney Island for the "XO" video. Can't stay away from the beach.

9 / 17

Mandy Moore, 'Stupid Cupid'

The Princess Diaries was a hit when it came out in 2001, and who could ever forget the epic beach scene where Anne Hathaway makes a fool of herself! Not me! Anyway, on the beach, Mandy Moore (the mean girl in the movie) does a cover of "Stupid Cupid" and is bubblegum goodness.

10 / 17

98º, 'Because of You'

The beach scene at 0:48 of 98º's "Because of You" is probably the basis for One Direction's "What Makes You Beautiful," proving that boy bands and beaches are a timeless combination.

11 / 17

LFO, 'Summer Girls'

The era of midriffs and crop tops ruled, especially when LFO released their video for "Summer Girls," which somehow managed to drop in more than one reference to Abercrombie & Fitch and Cherry Coke.

12 / 17

Len, 'Steal My Sunshine'

Len's surprising hit will make you pop on some sunnies because your sunshine will never be stolen when you listen to this song.

13 / 17

Lana Del Rey, 'High by the Beach'

When all you want to do is get high by the beach, Lana Del Rey will help you out. Just make sure you bring your bazooka. 

14 / 17

Rihanna, 'If It's Lovin' That You Want'

Who didn't want to wriggle around in the sand after Rihanna released the video for "If It's Lovin' That You Want"?

15 / 17

Shakira feat. Dizzee Rascal, 'Loca'

Dance party in the beach! Shakira really knows how to shake it, especially when it's 80 degrees or higher and you can hear waves crashing in the background.

16 / 17

Ellie Goulding, 'Anything Can Happen'

Even though Ellie Goulding's "Anything Can Happen" takes place on the beach, the fairy tale haziness isn't exactly ideal for soaking up rays and cracking open a cold one. Nevertheless, the pastel pink Skrillex 'do and the anthemic pump-up jam is perfect for any day at the beach 

17 / 17

Future feat. Kanye West, 'I Won'

Future and Kanye West rap about getting trophy wives and dipping asses in gold in "I Won," and for the music video, they take it to the beach, where they use the rocky landscape to get as artsy as possible.

Feb. 15: Big Things Coming

Steve Aoki and Fifth Harmony’s Lauren Jauregui are putting in some studio time and we can barely contain our excitement! The two artists shared a couple photos on Twitter during their sesh, and by the looks of it the outcome will be epic. "Anywaaaaay I'm excited @steveaoki is a hommieeee” tweeted Jauregui. This won’t be the first time Lauren go solo. Late last year the 5H member teamed up with Marian Hill for “Back To Me."
