"Mambo No. 5 (A Little Bit of Monika)" by Lou Bega 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, Just Dance: Best Of, Just Dance Now, Just Dance Unlimited, and 舞力无限.

On Just Dance: Summer Party, the song is covered by The Lemon Cubes. On subsequent games, The Lemon Cubes are still credited. It was also planned to be on Just Dance: Greatest Hits, but was scrapped for unknown reasons.

Appearance of the Dancers

The routine contains a man and a woman.



P1 has short black hair and wears a black tuxedo and white shirt with black collar with purple buttons, a pink bow-tie, purple pants, and black and white shoes.


P2 has long curly brown hair and wears a long pink glitter dress and two long gloves; one is in a dark shade of red and the other is purple, and black high heels.


In the remake, nothing much has changed, but the dancers are more realistic and P2’s glove is in a darker shade of purple (compared to Just Dance: Best Of and Just Dance 2015’s half-dancers).



A brown stage with three microphones and brown curtains and the writing "JUST DANCE".


In the remake, a purple sound wave is seen opening the routine. Sound waves are also seen regularly appearing all over the background. The microphones are also in higher quality and look much more realistic.

Gold Moves

There are 2 Gold Moves in this routine, both of which are the same:

Both Gold Moves:

  • P1: Point to P1’s thigh while bending over.
  • P2: Throw your arms out and flatten your hands.

Just Dance Now



  • Even with Lou Bega’s version, the song sounds different in-game than the original, due to the version used in-game being a re-recorded version.
    • This version of the song cuts the majority of the first verse (from "To the liquor store" to "I must stay deep ‘cause talk is cheap"), instead a record scratch is heard after "Let’s ride" and then the next verse starts.
  • In Just Dance Now/Unlimited, the audio used is the Lou Bega version. However, The Lemon Cubes are credited as the artists.


  • There is a glitch in Just Dance: Best Of. The Just Dance 2 gold move effect appears in the right of the screen and the on fire effect appears to the far left of the screen. It happens at the start of the routine.
  • The Just Dance Now version has a pictogram error: between 3:35 and 3:40, an incorrect pictogram appears for some split seconds.
    • The Just Dance Now version also has a glitch: sometimes, the game shows the lyrics and the pictograms from Maneater, removing the Gold Move effects that actually belong to Mambo No. 5 (A Little Bit of Monika).[2]
      • At the end, the scoring screen may show the coach for Maneater.
  • P2’s dress is red instead of a pink red on Just Dance 2 and Just Dance: Summer Party’s menu icon.
    • Also, in the Just Dance: Best Of icon, P1 has no glove. This was fixed in the remake.
    • Plus, in the remake square, P2’s glove is on her left hand.
