"Mambo No. 5 (A Little Bit of Monika)" by Lou Bega is featured on Just Dance 2 as a DLC, Just Dance: Summer Party, Just Dance: Best Of, Just Dance Now and Just Dance Unlimited. In Summer Party, the song is covered by The Lemon Cubes.

Appearance of the Dancers

The routine contains a man and a woman.



P1 has short black hair and wears a black tuxedo with purple buttons, a pink bow-tie, purple pants, and black and white shoes.


P2 has long curly brown hair and wears a long pink glitter dress and two long gloves; one is in a dark shade of red and the other is purple, and black high heels.


In the remake, nothing much has changed, but the dancers are more realistic and P2's glove is in a darker shade of purple (compared to Best Of and 2015’s half-dancers).



A brown stage with three microphones and brown curtains and the writing "JUST DANCE".


In the remake, a purple sound wave is seen opening the routine. Sound waves are also seen regularly appearing all over the background. The microphones are also in higher quality and look much more realistic.

Gold Moves

There are 2 Gold Moves in the routine:
Both Gold Moves: P1, point to the floor, and P2, shrug.

Appearances in Mashups

Mambo No.5 (A Little Bit of Monika) is featured in the following mashup:


  • Even with Lou Bega's version, the song sounds different in-game than the original.
    • However, according to iTunes, there is a re-recording of this song and it has re-mastered audio which sounds like the audio used in-game. Thus, Lou Bega's version used in-game is a re-recorded version.
    • The re-recorded version omits a verse relating to alcohol.
  • In the .ogg file from the Just Dance Now files, the audio preview plays the re-recorded version by Lou Bega instead of the covered version. However, The Lemon Cubes are credited as artists.
  • The Just Dance Now version has a pictogram error: between 3:35 and 3:40, an incorrect pictogram appears for some split seconds.
    • The Just Dance Now version also has a glitch: sometimes, the game shows the lyrics and the pictograms from Maneater, removing the Gold Move effects that actually belong to Mambo No. 5 (A Little Bit of Monika).[1]
      • At the end, the scores screen shows the Maneater coach.
  • The icon in Just Dance 2 and Just Dance Summer Party/Extra Songs shows a beta element: P2's dress is red instead of a pink red. The icon is fixed in Just Dance: Best Of and Just Dance Now.
