"Here Comes the Hotstepper" by Ini Kamoze, (covered by The Hit Crew in-game) was featured on Just Dance 2 as a downloadable track but became unavailable for purchase following the shutdown of the Wii Shop Channel in January 2019. The song remains playable on Just Dance: Summer Party and Just Dance Unlimited.
Appearance of the Dancer
The dancer is a man with dark blue hair, who dresses up as a farmer. He wears a dark blue straw hat over his head and has a Fu Manchu mustache. He also wears a blue and orange-yellow checkered polo shirt, a pair of blue overalls with the right suspender strapped on, a pair of bright orange socks, and white and dark blue boots tied with bright orange laces. A bright orange handkerchief hangs in the back pocket of his overall. He has a light blue outline.
In the remake, the excess neon in his outline is removed and his color gradient is slightly darker. Otherwise, the coach is the exact same.
The background is styled as a farm. There is a barn, chickens, and some sheaves of hay. For almost the entirety of the routine, there is a Rabbid annoying the dancer. In the end, the front wall of the barn falls, revealing numerous Rabbids. In the remake, the screen fades to black at the end.
There are 4 Gold Moves in this routine:
Gold Move 1: Swipe your right hand upwards from right to left, as if you were throwing something.
Gold Move 2: Swipe your right hand downwards as if you were trying to catch something.
Gold Move 3: Swing your right arm to the left.
Gold Move 4: Put your hands up with your thumbs up.
Here Comes the Hotstepper appears in the following Mashups:
- Here Comes the Hotstepper is the third cover by The Hit Crew in the series.
- The covered version of the song replaces the line "Murderer" with "Word ’em up!".
- In the Winter Wonderland video, in-game notifications, and the Nintendo Switch news notification, it mistakenly credits the artist as the original artist, "Ini Kamoze", rather than the cover artist and the one credited in game, "The Hit Crew".
- The coach’s avatar on Just Dance 2014 is unlocked upon reaching Level 100 on the World Dancefloor.
- The Raving Rabbid had been featured in this song to celebrate the Raving Rabbid games’ fifth anniversary.
- This is the second routine with a Raving Rabbid’s cameo, after When I Grow Up.
- The DLC used to be free along with Crazy Christmas for a short time but then went on to cost 300 Wii Points.
- The menu icon of the song on Just Dance 2 did not originally include a Raving Rabbid upon its debut in the game. The Rabbid was added after the song was no longer free.
- The pictograms on 1:14, 1:15, 2:02 and 2:03 are reversed.
- In Rabbids Land, the Rabbids’ dance moves are reused from this song when playing the jukebox mode. They can also be seen in the loading screen for that game.
- In the Winter Wonderland trailer, the pictograms have default colors.
- The Just Dance Unlimited cover uses the coach selection image instead of the album coach.
