Just Dance Wiki

"American Boy" by Estelle featuring Kanye West was featured on Just Dance 2 as a downloadable track but became unavailable for purchase following the shutdown of the Wii Shop Channel on January 30, 2019. The song remains playable on Just Dance: Summer Party. It can also be found in the Just Dance Unlimited files.

Appearance of the Dancers



P1 has purple and pink hat fedora, a beige vest, white shirt and pink tie underneath, beige jeans with a pink belt and a small chain, and white and pink shoes.


P2 has purple hair in a bun, beige earrings, a purple dress with pink ruffles and a pink rose, a pink band around her waist, and pink and purple strapped heels.



In the remake, he wears a navy blue and yellow-orange fedora. He has a yellow tie and brown suit with navy blue accents. A chain around his waist, and yellow and white sneakers.


In the remake, her hair and dress are now blue, her earrings are brown, and her heels are blue and yellow and brown. Her pink attributes from her dress are now yellow.


Just Dance 2/Extra Songs

The background is a downtown highway with moving silhouetted buildings with an overlay of an equalizer visualization. Silhouettes of signs also appear. The sky has an orange glow, as if it were sunrise/sunset. Different colored wavy lines appear in front of the coaches.

Just Dance: Summer Party

In Just Dance: Summer Party, the equalizer from the buildings and the reflection of the background are removed.


In the remake, light poles and traffic signs are added to the background. The lights in the buildings are now turquoise and yellow.

Gold Moves

There are 3 Gold Moves in this routine:

Gold Move 1: Curve your back slightly while pushing your arms behind your back.
Gold Moves 2 and 3: Punch the ground twice with your right hand while crouching down and putting your left hand on your left leg.

Appearances in Mashups

American Boy appears in the following Mashup:



  • "F**k" is censored.
    • "Jeans", "hell", and "But I’mma like what’s underneath them" are censored in Just Dance: Extra Songs. However, none of these words were censored in Just Dance 2, Just Dance: Summer Party, or in the remake.
      • This is the first time in the series which a full line is censored.
    • The lyrics do not display an ellipsis (...) for censored lyrics. When "hell" is censored, it is replaced with a gap.
  • The lyric "Ribena, I know what you’re drinkin’" is misinterpreted as "Rappin’"/"I know what you’re drinkin’".
  • The line "I’ll show you to my brethren" is misinterpreted as "I’ll show you to my bedroom".


  • In an early promotional picture, the pictograms from Chicken Payback are erroneously used.
  • During production, both of the pictograms were purple and the meters were different.
  • There is a glitch in the shop on Just Dance 2 involving American Boy: when choosing to download Firework, the short preview shows the routine for American Boy instead of the correct one.
  • In the trailer for Just Dance: Summer Party/Extra Songs, the coach for Pump Up The Volume is shown dancing in front of the background for American Boy.
