"Iko Iko" by Mardi Gras is featured on Just Dance 2 and Just Dance 3 (as a DLC).



The dancer, a woman, has a pink, purple, and light blue color scheme. Her wardrobe is like a tribal look, including a headdress with some flowers. She has some bracelets on her arms. Her shoes are red and purple. She looks like a New Orleans carnival dancer.


The remake shows the dancer in a slightly darker color scheme. She is now presented with a thin blue outline, and her skirt has elements of dark blue and pink.



The dance takes place in a rainforest background. Because of this, there is grass and plants growing around the dancer's feet when she dances.


According to the files found from the code, the rainforest has been changed from green to bright blue. This may be because the background has been changed to night.

Gold Moves

The routine has a total of 8 Gold Moves, all of which are the same:
All Gold Moves: Spin your left hand in a clockwise direction and your right hand in a counter-clockwise direction at the same time and in vigorous motion.

  • The song is performed by Mardi Gras Indians. The original title is Jock-A-Mo.
    • This is why the background is a rain forest, and the dancer looks like dancer from a New Orleans Carnival.
    • "Mardi Gras" means "Carnival" in French, so it could be a reference to the artists (Mardi Gras Indians) and her outfit.
  • The song has some Indian words; this makes it the second bilingual song in the series, after Girls And Boys.
  • The song has a total of 8 Gold Moves, being second only to Proud Mary and Ninja Re Bang Bang, which have 9 Gold Moves each.
  • The DLC version on the Wii version of Just Dance 3 doesn't keep in rhythm with the song.[1]
  • If you look at the pictogram sprite, you will notice that one pictogram has some parts of the leg that have been cut out by mistake.
  • In the pictogram sprite, you can also find a non-golden version of the Gold Move; this probably means that the Gold Moves were 4 instead of 8 during production, or they will be 4 in Just Dance Now.
  • Raven Symone and her friends can be seen dancing to this songs part in The Fox (What Does The Fox Say?)'s Mashup.
  • In Just Dance Now, extra sounds effects that remind to jungle can be heard at the beginning.
