"Je sais pas danser" by Natoo is featured on Just Dance Unlimited. When it was first released, it was a regional exclusive for France, Belgium, Switzerland, and some areas of Luxembourg for four months before receiving a worldwide release in February 2017. It was later released on Just Dance Now.
Appearance of the Dancer
The dancer is a woman with purple hair in a bun. She has a purple bra and a pink and yellow cropped sweater top with purple zigzag lines on it. Her glittery pants are turquoise with purple and green stripes, and have a purple belt with a sky blue eye. She also has glittery shoes that change color, because they are overwhelmed by the colored floor. During the line Qu'ils m'ont crue/En crise d'epilepsie, the pants turn purple and the top turns peach orange and aqua, following the beat of the song.
The background appears to be a stage with a disco checkered floor and many screens. The singer herself, Natoo, surrounded by a paper outline, appears on all the screens along with words (such as "Twerk") and elements referencing the lyrics in a paper outline (for example, many fake teeth appear during the line "C’est pas d’ma faute"/"Si j’ai le style d’un retraité"). During the chorus, the background behind the screens shows many patterns in yellow, green, and purple. During the second verse, a female breakdancer appears and dances along with the coach. In the bridge, a boy wearing a disco ball head dances along with the coach until the end of the song. The last chorus features Natoo's dogs on the screens, and Natoo herself on the left side of the coach.
There are 3 Gold Moves in this routine:
Gold Moves 1 and 2: Bring your hands down.
