It’s no surprise: Miley Cyrus’ “Wrecking Ball” was Vevo’s most-viewed music video of 2013. The video drew 19.3 million views on the music video website just in its first day in September. Since then, it has racked up over 371 million views worldwide.

It’s a good song, but we doubt that’s the reason so many people watched the video, which features the singer straddling a wrecking ball in the nude. Well, almost nude. She’s wearing shoes, as one does in a dangerous construction zone. And then there’s that part where she’s making out with a hammer…

But maybe it’s not all about nudity. The other risqué video of the summer, “Blurred Lines,” came only in seventh. Here’s the full top 10 list (as of Dec. 1):
