Appearance of the Dancers
The routine is led by a female and has a male and a female backup dancer. They all have a black outline.
P1 is a man with buzz-cut dark blue hair. He wears a blue sleeveless with a red collar, a pair of yellow sweatpants, a golden chain necklace, black shoes, and black sunglasses.
P2 is a woman with long black curly hair with a blue streak. She wears a black bra covered by a red sleeveless cape, a pair of blue jeans, and blue hoop earrings.
P3 is a woman with long black hair. She wears a blue bra, two orange wristbands, a pair of red high waist shorts, and blue sneakers.
The background starts with lots of background dancers copying the moves of the backup dancers throughout an African field. During an instrumental, Freshlyground's verse, and Shakira's final verse, it transitions to a white background with circles in different colors. When the coaches are dancing, they are sliding through different parts of the background.
There are 3 Gold Moves, all of which are the same:
All Gold Moves: Put your hands together and move them from left to right.

- Waka Waka (This Time for Africa) is the sixth song by Shakira in the series.
- It is also the second song by Shakira in Just Dance 2018.
- Freshlyground is not credited as a featured artist.
- When the tracklist was revealed on Just Dance’s website in June 2017, the icon for The Way I Are (Dance With Somebody) featured P2 from this routine instead of P1 from the actual routine.
- On the thumbnail for the UK preview, the song title appears as "Waka Waka (This Time is for Africa)".
- On the title, instead, it is simply credited as "Waka Waka".
- The background dancers imitate P1 and P3 despite not being the same appearances.
- There is a little glitch in the background during the part when the circles form in the background: a background dancer is overlapping one of the circles, then he disappears.
