The routine was also planned to appear on Kids Mode in Just Dance 2019, but it was never added in the final version for unknown reasons.

Appearance of the Dancers
The routine is performed by a male-male-female-female dance crew. They wear 1990’s style clothing that resembles Bruno and Cardi’s outfits from the music video, and they have a purple glowing outline.
P1 is a man. He is wearing a magenta cap, circular sunglasses, a navy blue long sleeve shirt, a yellow-and-blue-striped jacket with magenta accents, light blue pants, a gold strap chain and red and black shoes.
P2 is a man. He wears a blue hat with yellow and pink accents, circular sunglasses, a light blue vest that covers a yellow tank top with navy blue, yellow and purple patterns, two black bracelets blue pants, black socks and pink shoes.
P3 is a woman. She has black braided hair with magenta and light blue ribbons, circular sunglasses, triangular earrings, a multicolored jacket, a navy blue bra, a purple watch in her left wrist, purple shorts with red letters in a black design, black knee length socks, and yellow shoes with light blue accents. The jacket contains yellow, orange, red, and light blue colors.
P4 is a woman. She has black hair in a braid that lays on her left cheek, circular sunglasses with a gold frame, golden hoop earrings, a pink and yellow bra with red straps, navy blue fishnet sleeves, golden bracelets on her left hand, blue jeans, a red handkerchief in her left pocket, black ankle socks and purple shoes.
The background changes a lot during the routine, but still keeps an urban 90’s theme throughout. Spotlights will also light up to the beat throughout the routine. The background also looks like the music video.
Before the routine starts, you will see a neon pink room with a small purple fading on the wall. As the song starts, windows will light up separately to the beat of the song, while a pink light inside each of the windows will light up after. During Cardi’s verse, one section of the building will be highlighted during the solo part of each dancer, meanwhile blue highlights will swoop in towards it. The highlighted yellow squares transition from inside-out after all of the solo segments.
During the verses, the routine takes place in a building rooftop with a skyline in the back that changes between two different colors: one in purple, and another in orange. The buildings will usually flip vertically or horizontally depending on the dancers’ movements. In the pre-chorus, it changes into a warehouse setting, mainly colored purple. In the back, there are staircases with different silhouettes of people dancing on them. Behind that is a city skyline that transitions from orange to blue.
In the chorus, there are various different lines and shapes with the large ones being a circle and a triangle, while palm trees can be found on the right side. There are also two metal fences on each side.
During the bridge, psychedelic panels for each dancer appear. Whenever any of them move, industrial apartment building stairs can be seen behind an orange backdrop. It then changes into a lightning patterned wall. The same transitioning from Cardi’s verse in the beginning happens here, except whenever each section is highlighted, it is patterned in a square design that spins.
The final background is now the same as the first one, but with various sized crates and a platform.
There are 2 Gold Moves in this routine:
Gold Move 1: Throw your arms down.
Gold Move 2:

- According to an Instagram post shared by the Spanish Just Dance account on April 27, 2021, P1 is named "Keenen". He is therefore the seventeenth Just Dance coach to have an official name, after Jewerly Robin and Inspector Thomas Dance, Frost Princess, Magma Princess, the Classic coaches from Circus, Rita, Miguel, Phone Girl, Hairman and Poolman, Amanita, Charles The Parrot and Cat.
- In that post, a fictional story about his past was shared: "Life has been a walk in the park for Keenen, and he has always had high self-esteem. But he got too cocky, and ruined his relationship with Cat 😫💔. Dancing has always been a competition for him… Now, he's the leader of a team in the Versus Dance contest, and thinks he can get Cat back with his performance. What do you think? 👀🕺"
- Considering both Keenen and Cat's names were mentioned in the first post, the sixteenth and seventeenth place in the list of dancers with official names can be shared between the two.
