Just Dance Kids 2

The coach is a boy. He has short black hair with a small crest, beige jumper with a brown vest, ochre loose pants and white shoes.

Background

Just Dance 4

The routine takes place inside a building in Turkey. In the background, a real Turkish building, the Hagia Sophia basilica, can be spotted. Sometimes during the song there is a Mouse and a Bird on a flying rug on the background flying.

Just Dance Kids 2

The background is a boat with many bags, that is swinging in a port in front of an Arabian city.

Appearances in Mashups

Istanbul is featured in the following Mashup:

Trivia

  • This song was supposed to have a Mashup, but for unknown reasons, it was removed from the final game. The Mashup only features about 6 dancers.
  • In the beta version of Just Dance Now, there is a bug that makes everything disappear, giving a black screen for some seconds, and then everything starts, but the routine, lyrics and pictograms remain not synced with the song for the rest of the time. However, it happened only in one video.
  • There is a glitch when choosing this song in the song menu on the Xbox 360. When clicking the song, Super Bass appears rather than the four coaches, before choosing your player.
  • The song is simply credited as Istanbul. The full name of the song is Istanbul (Not Constantinople).
  • This is the first all-animal dance crew routine. The second one is Copacabana. The third one is Watch Me (Whip/Nae Nae).
  • In the unused Mashup, Pump Up The Volume fades away quickly at the end.
  • In the menu icon, the coaches pose in front of a golden glittery background instead of the actual background for this routine.
  • P3 later makes an appearance as P2 in Watch Me (Whip/Nae Nae), which is ironic, considering everyone else in that routine is P2 of their original routines.
  • In Just Dance Kids 2 the song is heavily slowed down.
