Appearance of the Dancer
The Alternate routine is a Dance Crew composed of two males and two females wearing candy costumes.
P1 wears a pink marshmallow costume with pink tights and peach sleeves. He has a yellow glove.
P2 has brown hair in pigtails, peach-yellow sleeves, an orange lollipop costume with a white swirl and orange tights.
P3 has black curly hair, yellow sleeves, a yellow and black Cremino costume with yellow tights and yellow shoes.
P4 has black hair in a ponytail with a green bow shaped like a leaf, a green sweet costume with sky blue stars, green tights and green sneakers.
The routine starts with a black background showing shiny hexagons and neon saxophones. In the verses, it switches to a disco with colorful spotlights, neon animated palm trees into pink vases with light blue circles and a stage with two yellow staircases, which features rainbow neon flamingos. In the pre-chorus, the flamingos disappear from the stage and reappear behind a yellow and red wheel in front of the stage. In specific parts of the song, it switches back to the starting background.
Candy People Version
The background is composed of various patterns in pastel colors with candies on them. At the beginning, various red and light pink lollipops forming line formations on a pastel pink background. During the verses, the background is a pastel blue checkerboard pattern with red and yellow lollipops appearing over each square. The light and darks colors on the checkerboard pattern constantly alternate, as well as the color of the lollipops. During the pre-chorus, the lollipops change into marshmallows, Creminos and sweets group-by-group, and the lollipops that are yet to be changed spin with the dancers' movements. As the chorus begins, the squares and lollipops disappear to reveal a pastel green background where more red and yellow lollipops appear in zig-zag line formations. When "Ole!" is sung, a few marshmallows, Creminos and sweets appear in the empty spaces between the lollipops. During the saxophone instrumental, the background is similar to that of the beginning but the lollipops are in a zig-zag formation like the previous background and they shake with the dancers' movements. During the bridge, a pastel blue swirl pattern appears like that of a lollipop, and orange and white marshmallows, blue and white lollipops, pink and white Creminos and pink sweets with white dots float around, moving with the dancer's movements and getting knocked away during the line "Sabe a vitamina". The dancers make more rain down through their movements, which shake to the beat of the song. During the last chorus, the candies space out with the beat of the song after INNA says "Ole!". The song ends with the saxophone instrumental background, but the candies fall out of the background.
There are 4 Gold Moves in the Classic routine:
Gold Moves 1, 2, and 4: Place your arms behind your head. The fourth one is the final move of the routine.
Gold Move 3: Clap to the left and stomp with your right leg.

Cola Song appears in the following Dance Quest maps:
Candy People Version
- J Balvin is the fourth Colombian musician to appear in the series, after Shakira, Maluma and Carlos Vives.
- INNA is the second Romanian artist in the series, after Alexandra Stan.
- The coach's stilettos are very glitchy, especially when she closes her legs.
- In the thumbnail of the gameplay, the dancer appears to have light blue glasses, but as seen in the gameplay, the dancer's glasses are barely visible, causing them to appear skin-colored.
- The background looks similar to Mr. Saxobeat's and Drop the Mambo's backgrounds.
- On the Just Dance YouTube channel, at the end you can hear the Gold Move sound effect, but cannot see the pictogram. On the UK channel you can see the pictogram for a second.
- The dancer's shoes looks similar to Where Have You Been's On Stage mode's shoes.
- In the Just Dance Unlimited files, there is a Beta menu icon of the Candy Version: the coaches are seen in different order (P1-P4-P3-P2), their color schemes are diverse and they don't wear tights.
- In the Alternate routine, P4's arms often blend with the costume and P2's costume tends to turn completely orange.
- There are many lyrics errors in the routine:
- The line "With my maraca" is misinterpreted as "When mama arrives".
- The line "J. Balvin, Inna" is misinterpreted as "Shake out babe"/"Inna".
- The line "Sabe a coca cola" is misspelled as "Sabe a cola cola".
- The line "Y la gente grita" is misinterpreted as "Y la gente y grita".
- There is a pictogram error in the second verse: the first pictogram of the routine, telling the players to raise their arms up in a semicircle while walking forward, is accidentally recycled when the coach just raises her arm up during the line "But how much Cola can your body take?".
- The Candy People version is the third song to feature coaches wearing food as their costume after In The Summertime and PoPiPo.
- The dancers from In the Summertime wore fruit, PoPiPo's backup dancers wore vegetables and the dancers from this routine wear candies (as said in the Alternate's name).
- This is also the second routine where all the dancers get mad at one of them (in this case, P2, P3 and P4 towards P1), the first being In The Summertime.
- The pictogram for Gold Move 1, 2 and 4 is pointed to a darker shade of yellow.
- The Beta version of the Candy People routine had a different-colored and non-animated background.
- In the Classic routine, the dancer messes up on her footing during the line "La fiesta apenas comienza y la gente grita".
- Even though the moves are the same, there is a different Gold Move pictogram in the Alternate routine for Gold Move 4, as the dancers are turning towards the screen as they perform it.
