This article is about the song by David Guetta. You may be looking for the song by The Black Eyed Peas with the same name.

"Hey Mama" by David Guetta ft. Nicki Minaj, Bebe Rexha & Afrojack is featured on Just Dance 2016, Just Dance Now and Just Dance Unlimited.

Appearance of the Dancers

Classic

P2

P2 looks like a female military commander. She has an army cap which covers her red hair, a pair of black round-framed sunglasses, and is wearing a grey army uniform with a black skirt. She is also wearing a pair of navy blue boots.

P1/P3

P1 and P3 are male soldiers with soldier hats covering their neatly combed hair. They are in a black jacket which covers an orange top. On top of that, they are also wearing a pair of long black jeans as well as a pair of black shoes each. They blend in with the rest of the troops.

After the second chorus, the dancers can be seen going through multiple stages of color inversions.

Geisha Version

All three alternate dancers are women dressed as geishas. They all have black hair tied up and wear kimonos and black slippers with socks. P1’s kimono is orange, P2’s kimono is light pink, and P3’s kimono is blue. Each dancer holds two paper fans which are of the same colors as their kimonos.

Background

Classic

The routine takes place in a military aircraft dispatching platform. There is an Air Force standing behind the lead and backup dancers - all the troops have the same appearance as the backup dancers. The dance platform is seen ascending through levels of troop sections before reaching the top. Then, the dispatching platform can be seen opening, revealing a bright sky and even more troops on land dancing along. The platform lights up to the rhythm of the song.

Geisha Version

The background first consists of beige oriental screen panels. At each chorus, the background switches to a snowy nighttime landscape. At the third verse, the screen panels are pink and spotlights rapidly flash at them.

Gold Moves

Classic

There are 3 Gold Moves in the Classic routine, all of which are the same:
All Gold Moves: Salute.

Geisha Version

There are 3 Gold Moves in the Geisha Version routine:
Gold Move 1: Open your arms and grab the air toward your left.
Gold Move 2: Make a big circle with both arms and lower your body.
Gold Move 3: All: get your right hand back; P1 face right, P2 face forward and P3 face left.

Trivia

  • Hey Mama is the second song by David Guetta in the main series.
  • Hey Mama is the sixth song by Nicki Minaj in the series.
  • It is also the first song by Bebe Rexha in the series, following The Way I Are (Dance With Somebody).
  • In the E3 demo, the part of the song that is a sample of "Rosie" by Alan Lomax has been covered in order to avoid copyright issues. The people who sang the covered part are unknown. It is not covered in the full version of the game.
    • This made Hey Mama the second track to be partially covered, with the rest of the song left in its original state, following Good Feeling.
    • The covered version is used in the trailer for the Tina Fey & Amy Poehler comedy Sisters.
  • This song holds the record for most separate artists credited for their contribution, with four, while the previous record was three artists with Jai Ho! (You Are My Destiny), Problem, Bailando, and Bang Bang.
  • Despite the song being a trio, P1 and P3 (as well as the unplayable back-up dancers) are performed by the same dancer as seen in the Just Dance 2016 Behind-The-Scenes footage. This is a similar case with other trios such as Dark Horse, DADDY, Kung Fu Pop, Bang Bang Bang (in which the backup dancers are portrayed by the same person), The Fox (What Does The Fox Say?) and Bad Romance (where the backup dancers look similar, but aren't the same dancer).
  • "Freak", "nana"[3], "d**k", "b****es” and "f**king" are censored.
    • However, "d**k" was already censored in the music video version.
    • "Nana" was not censored in early E3 gameplays.[4] The sound effect used at the end of the song replaces the word.
  • Unlike the other Showtimes with censored words, the censors are represented by boxes covering the words instead of the usual ellipsis (...) replacing them. When "nana" is censored, the edge of the second "A" can still be seen.
  • Bebe Rexha is the second musician of Albanian descent to appear in the series, after Rita Ora's appearance in Black Widow.
  • P1 and P3's caps are recycled from Mahna Mahna.
  • When the line "Beating my drum like dum-di-di-day," the word "my" shows up as "the" in the lyrics.[5][6] The word "plus" in the line "plus I keep the ... (nana) real sweet for your eating" appears as "yes."
    • This could have been intentional.
  • If you explore the Just Dance Now files, you can notice that P3's icon from the menu selection is less centered than P1's.
  • In the Just Dance Now menu, Hey Mama and Born This Way were erroneously placed before Bad Romance.
    • This was later fixed.
  • Geisha are traditional Japanese female entertainers who act as hostesses and whose skills include performing various arts such as classical music, dance, games and conversation, mainly to entertain male customers.
    • That's why it's called Geisha Version.
  • In the song's Community Remix, player names and country flags are shown.[7] This feature was included in all Just Dance 2015 Community Remixes and in Uptown Funk's Community Remix, but it was removed when All About That Bass' Community Remix was released.
    • Also, ZillyZucchini is the only participant to be chosen twice for this Community Remix.
  • The Community Remix is affected by a glitch that makes the coaches freeze for the rest of the song. While this happens, the pictograms and the lyrics keep working but they're heavily slowed down, as well as the song.[8]
  • On Just Dance Unlimited, the player can only play as P2 on the song's Community Remix. This is, however, not the case on Just Dance Now, as the player can play as P1 and P3 on that game.
  • The song was played during the play-off of the Just Dance World Cup 2015.[9]
  • The Community Remix reappears in Just Dance 2017. This would also make it the last community remix available in the Wii Version.
    • However, it was removed in the final version.
  • In Just Dance Now, the Classic cover is also used for the Community Remix.
  • A score detection file is named "heymama_karatekid.msm", referencing the omonymous movie series.
