"Moving on Up" by M People 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, in which the song is covered by The Lemon Cubes.
Appearance of the Dancer
The dancer is a woman with purple curly hair, a purple, lime green, and light blue striped sequin tunic tank, indigo leggings, and purple patent high heel boots. She is also wearing a light blue bracelet on her right arm and lime green earrings. In the remake, she is brighter.
The background is a stage, with a purple glowing stand that the dancer is dancing on, around of which is a large silhouette audience dancing and grooving to the song. There are four female silhouettes dancing along with the dancer under golden headlights and on small golden stages.
There are 3 Gold Moves in this routine:
Gold Move 1: Bend your arms, keeping them upwards, with your hands behind your head.
Gold Move 2: Squat down and put both of your hands on your knees.
Gold Move 3: Get down on your knees and throw your arms out. This is the final move of the routine.
Moving on Up appears in the following Mashups:
Moving on Up appears in Puppet Master Modes. Here are the captions attributed to her dance moves:
- Clapping Queen
- Driving Queen
- Girlie Show
- Looking For You
- Pointing Queen
- Shimmy Queen
- Vogueing Queen
- Waving Queen
- Along with Mambo No. 5 (A Little Bit Of Monika), Moving on Up appeared on Just Dance 2 as a DLC, using its original version and having the original artist credited, only to reappear on Just Dance: Summer Party, using a covered version by The Lemon Cubes.
- The line "Take it like a man baby" appears as one line the first time it is sung, but the second time it is sung, it is divided into two lines ("Take it like a man"/"Baby").
- The line "But you can’t even find my face" appears as "But you can’t even find my place".
- Moving on Up is the first routine in the series (and the only one in Just Dance 2) where the entire background is pre-rendered as part of the coach video. This later occurs with several songs starting in Just Dance 4 and all routines from Just Dance 2016 onward.
- As a result of this, the coach is layered behind the score balls rather than in front of them.
- In the preview, the pictograms are bordeaux instead of violet, and the "OK" feedback icon is red instead of purple.
- Two pictograms have been edited incorrectly, as the shake symbols on the first one lack their outline, and the head of the second one is slightly distorted at the bottom.
- During the bridge, when the coach touches the floor, the light blue lines on her shirt turns purple.
- There are some graphical differences between the Just Dance 2 and the Summer Party/Extra Songs version:
- In Just Dance: Summer Party, the background spotlights have some extra effects.
- On Just Dance: Summer Party, if there are enough "GOOD"’s or "PERFECT"’s to get the "On Fire" mode, the fire will not be displayed. It will, however, play the brief sound and give extra points.
- In Just Dance 2, the Gold Move warning effect is layered in front of everything, but in Just Dance: Summer Party, it is layered behind everything, resulting in being it unable to be seen.
