"Here Comes the Hotstepper" by Ini Kamoze, covered by The Hit Crew in the game, is featured on Just Dance: Summer Party. It first appeared on Just Dance 2 as a downloadable track.

Appearance of the Dancer


The dancer is a man who appears like a Mongolian farmer. He has a blue hat, a blue and yellow checked shirt, blue one-shoulder overalls with yellow tail on the back, and blue boots.


The background is styled as a farm. There is a barn, chickens and some sheaves of hay. For almost the entirety of the routine, there is a Ravin Rabbid annoying the dancer. At the end, the front wall of the barn falls, revealing numerous Rabbids.

Gold Moves

The routine has a total of 4 Gold Moves:

Gold Move 1: Put your hand from right to left, like you are throwing something.
Gold Move 2: Put your hand like you are trying to catch something.
Gold Move 3: Swing your right arm to the left as if to say, "Aww snap!'
Gold Move 4: Simply put your hands up.

Appearances in Mashups

Here Comes the Hotstepper appears in the following Mashups:


  • This is the third cover by The Hit Crew, after Toxic and Holiday.
  • The song's avatar on Just Dance 2014 is unlocked upon reaching Level 100 on the World Dancefloor.
  • The cover replaces the line "Murderer" with "Word 'em up!".
  • The dancer has a similar facial design to P1 of Kung Fu Fighting and P4 of I Was Made For Lovin' You.
  • When the Raving Rabbid knocks on the "screen," he breaks the fourth wall. This is the second time the fourth wall is broken in Just Dance, following Futebol Crazy.
  • The Raving Rabbid was featured in this song to celebrate Rabbid's fifth anniversary.
  • Some lyrics sample Land Of 1000 Dances.
  • The DLC used to be free along with Crazy Christmas for a short time but then went on to cost 300 Wii Points.
  • The menu bubble of the song in Just Dance 2 did not originally include a Raving Rabbid upon its debut in the game, but the Rabbid was added after the song was no longer free.
  • The pictograms on 1:14, 1:15, 2:02 and 2:03 are reversed.
  • In Rabbids Land the Rabbids' dance moves are reused from this song when playing the jukebox mode.
  • This is the first song in the series that does not have a reflective floor, as well as the first one that does not have the appearance of a stage.
