The dancer is a man. He wears a backwards golden cap, black sunglasses, a gold jacket, a red and white button down shirt, black skinny jeans, a silver necklace, and gold sneakers.
The dancers in the couple version are a man and a woman.
P1 has short black hair and wears a red blazer, an orange dress shirt with a black tie, blue pants, and black shoes.
P2 has shoulder-length black hair and wears an orange studded sleeveless dress with a pink waistband, black pantyhose, and pink heels.
The background starts off on a swirled backdrop with silhouetted women dancing seductively. The backdrop fades from red to pink to blue. Just before the chorus starts, a woman walks forward, revealed to be a void for the man to enter. During each of the choruses, the background features square and diamond lights, mainly being red, purple, gold and white. Silhouetted women that match the colors dance around with the man. Just before the second verse, red striped lines flow to the right, with another female void coming forth. Inward are various silhouetted women lying seductively, with another void walking forth. At the third verse, the silhouettes stand halfway out of the ground; they are shushing and flowing their arms. Near the end of the song, the background returns to the swirled backdrop.
The couple version is showcased with a large colored panel that switches between turquoise and pink. Octagon-shaped pebbles surround the screen, and the dancers' silhouettes are visible on it. At the third verse, the screen pans away, with stage lights shining.

[GM#] - indicates the occurrence of a Gold Move; the pound sign indicates the chronological appearance of the Gold Move in the Mashup.
Jason Derulo performed this song at E3 to help Ubisoft launch the game.
This is the second time such a thing has happened, after Flo Rida performing Good Feeling to help with the launch of Just Dance 4.
Jason Derulo said in an interview that he is a fan of the game and he plays it with his niece.
Thus, Jason Derulo is the first fan of Just Dance to have a song featured in the series.
The lyrics “You open the door/Wearing nothing but a smile” are referenced in the ESRB's rating summary for Just Dance 2016.
In the Just Dance Unlimited files, an unreleased Star Remix/VIP can be found featuring Jason Derulo dancing to the Classic routine.
Want To Want Me’s preview is the first preview to have an interview with someone that is not with the two Just Dance producers.
Behind Jason Derulo's performance at E3, the full gameplay can be seen without the pictograms, scoring, and level bar. This marks the first time the full gameplay has been "revealed" by the official material before the game's release.
The ESRB Rating summary references the background of this song.
The background is a part of the reason for the "Mild Suggestive Themes" rating.
The Classic routine of the song was featured in an episode of iZombie.
The classic's menu icon can be found in the files of the Nintendo Switch version of Just Dance 2017.
The Mashup of this song is also the first Just Dance Unlimited exclusive Mashup to only feature female dancers. It was later followed by No Control’s Mashup.
When the Mashup was first released, the background did not move for some reason, and the color of the background did not change when the dancer switched to the next. This was fixed on December 21st, 2015.
During Just Dance’s routine, the background color switches before the next dancer appears.
The dancer appearing throughout the Mashup is Aurélie Sériné, appearing four times.
