Hier geht es um David Guetta's song. Nicht zu verwechseln mit The Black Eyed Peas' song with the same name.

"Hey Mama" by David Guetta ft. Nicki Minaj, Bebe Rexha & Afrojack is featured on Just Dance 2016 and Just Dance Now.

Appearance of the Dancers


Heymama coach 2 big


P2 looks like a female military commander. She has an army cap which covers her red hair, a pair of black round-framed sunglasses, and is wearing a grey army uniform with a black skirt. Ironically, she is also wearing a pair of navy blue boots.

P1 and P3 are male soldiers with soldier hats covering their neatly combed hair. They are in a black jacket which covers an orange top. On top of that, they are also wearing a pair of long black jeans as well as a pair of black shoes each. They blend in with the rest of the troops.

After the second chorus, the dancers can be seen going through multiple stages of color inversions.

Geisha Version

All three alternate dancers are women dressed as geishas. They all have black hair tied up and wear kimonos and black slippers with socks. P1's kimono is orange, P2's kimono is light pink, and P3's kimono is blue. Each dancer holds two paper fans which are of the same colors as their kimonos.



The routine takes place in a military aircraft dispatching platform. There is an Air Force standing behind the lead and backup dancers - all the troops have the same appearance as the backup dancers. The dance platform is seen ascending through levels of troop sections before reaching the top. Then, the dispatching platform can be seen opening, revealing a bright sky and even more troops on land dancing along. The platform lights up to the rhythm of the song.

Geisha Version

The background first consists of beige oriental screen panels. At each chorus, the background switches to a snowy nighttime landscape. At the third verse, the screen panels are pink and spotlights rapidly flash at them.

Gold Moves


There are 3 Gold Moves in the Classic routine, all of which are the same:
All: Make a saluting pose.

Geisha Version

There are 3 Gold Moves in the Geisha Version routine:
Gold Move 1: Open your arms and grab the air toward your left.
Gold Move 2: Make a big circle with both arms and low your body.
Gold Move 3: All: get your right hand back; P1 face right, P2 face forward and P3 face left.

Dance Quests

Hey Mama is featured in the following Dance Quests maps:


  • Cake

Geisha Version

  • Rocket


  • This is the second song by David Guetta in the series, following She Wolf (Falling to Pieces).
  • This is the sixth song by Nicki Minaj in the series following Super Bass, Beauty And A Beat, Starships, Pound The Alarm and Bang Bang.
  • In the E3 demo, the part of the song that is a sample of "Rosie" by Alan Lomax has been covered in order to avoid copyright issues. The people who sang the covered part are unknown. It is not covered in the full version of the game.
    • This made Hey Mama the second track to be partially covered, with the rest of the song left in its original state, following Good Feeling.
    • The covered version is used in the trailer for the upcoming Tina Fey & Amy Poehler comedy Sisters.
  • This song holds the record for most separate artists credited for their contribution, with four, while the previous record was three artists with Jai Ho! (You Are My Destiny), Problem, Bailando, and Bang Bang.
  • Despite the song being a trio, P1 and P3 (as well as the unplayable back-up dancers) are performed by the same dancer as seen in the Just Dance 2016 Behind-The-Scenes footage. This is a similar case with other trios such as The Fox (What Does The Fox Say?), Bad Romance, and Dark Horse, where the backup dancers look similar, but aren't the same dancer.
  • Similar to Toxic in that the dancer used in-game has nothing to do with the performer's appearance in the respective music video, Nicki Minaj dresses up like a pilgrim in the music video while in Just Dance 2016, the lead dancer is dressed up as a military officer.
  • "Freak", "nana"[3], "d**k", "n****as" and "f**king" are censored. Even though "freak" is censored in this song, "freak" is not censored in Mr. Saxobeat and other songs.
    • However, "d**k" were already censored in the music video version.
    • "Nana" was not censored in early E3 gameplays.[4] The sound effect used at the end of the song replaces the word. Also, when "f**king" is censored, the "man" from "I'll be your man" can be faintly heard, and when "freak" is censored, "mama" can be heard
  • Bebe Rexha is the second musician of Albanian descent to appear in the series, after Rita Ora's appearance in Black Widow.
  • P1 and P3's caps are recycled from Mahna Mahna.
  • P2 is Audrey Hurtis, who has also performed Born This Way (P2).
  • When the line "Beating my drum like dum-di-di-day," the word "my" shows up as "the" in the lyrics.[5][6] The word "plus" in the line "plus I keep the ... (nana) real sweet for your eating" appears as "yes."
    • This could have been intentional.
  • If you explore the Just Dance Now files, you can notice that P3's icon from the menu selection is less centered than P1's.
