"Just Dance" is the debut single by American singer Lady Gaga. The song was produced by RedOne and co-written by RedOne, Gaga and Akon, while also featuring labelmate Colby O'Donis. It was released in 2008 as the lead single from Gaga's debut studio album, The Fame. The song was written by Gaga in 10 minutes as "a happy record". "Just Dance" also has influences of R&B and lyrically speaks about being intoxicated at a club.

The song received positive reviews from music critics, who complimented its club anthem-like nature and the synth-pop associated with it. The song topped the charts in the United States, Australia, Canada, the Republic of Ireland, the Netherlands and the United Kingdom, as well as reaching the top ten in many other countries. In the United States, "Just Dance" was a sleeper hit, spending almost five months on the Billboard Hot 100 before finally reaching the summit of the chart in January 2009, after being released in April 2008. The single is among the best-selling singles of all time, having sold over 10 million copies.

The music video of the song portrayed Lady Gaga appearing in a party where she plays the song, prompting party-goers to start dancing in enjoyment. Gaga compared her experience of shooting the video with being on a Martin Scorsese set. "Just Dance" was performed by Gaga in a number of live appearances including all of her concert tours, where she usually plays on a keytar during the song. In 2009, the song received a Grammy nomination in the Best Dance Recording category but lost to electronic duo Daft Punk for their song "Harder, Better, Faster, Stronger (Alive 2007)".[2]

Writing and inspiration[edit]

"Just Dance" is written by Gaga and Akon with co-writing by RedOne, who also produced the track. In an interview with Heat, Gaga explained her inspiration for writing the song. She said, "I was very hung-over. I wrote the song in about 10 minutes with [producer] RedOne. And it was my first time being in a Hollywood studio. Very pristine, big huge room with giant speakers."[3] Gaga wrote "Just Dance" during January 2008 and according to her it was "hard work and a lot of people didn't believe in it at first".[4] Later, Gaga reflected on the song by saying,

"That record saved my life. I was in such a dark space in New York. I was so depressed, always in a bar. I got on a plane to LA to do my music and was given one shot to write the song that would change my life and I did. I never went back. I left behind my boyfriend, my apartment. I still haven't been back. My mother went in and cleared it for me."[5]

In an interview with Contactmusic.com Gaga explained that "Just Dance" is a happy record and is supposed to be appreciated by people going through rough times like losing jobs and homes etc.[6] Gaga further explained with Artistdirect that she wanted to write a beautiful record with "Just Dance". Being asked the reason for which "Just Dance" has become popular, Gaga said that she thought, "Everyone is looking for a song that really speaks to the joy in our souls and in our hearts and having a good time. It's just one of those records. It feels really good, and when you listen to it, it makes you feel good inside. It's as simple as that. I don't think it's rocket science when it comes to the heart. I think it's a heart theme song."[7] In March 2010, the song was released as downloadable content for the music-based videogame series Rock Band, alongside "Poker Face", "Monster" and "Bad Romance" as part of "Lady Gaga Pack 01".[8]

Composition[edit]

"Just Dance" is an uptempo synth-pop and dance-pop song. The song combines synths of clipped marching beats, soaring electronics and contains mild R&B-infused beats.[9] It is written in the key of C minor and is set at a moderate dance tempo of 119 beats per minute. Gaga's vocal spans from the low note of G3 to the high note of C5.[10] The song begins with a fast tempo following by the synth arrangement and Gaga uttering "RedOne". "Just Dance" has a basic progression of Cm–E–B–Fm.[10] O'Donis sings the interlude in the same range as Gaga[10] followed by an R&B-influenced interlude by her,[9] after which the chorus is repeated with O'Donis providing backup vocals and the marching beats. The song ends with an echoing of the word "dance".[10]

Lyrically, "Just Dance" throws a partial tongue-in-cheek perspective with lyrics like "What's going on on the floor? / I love this record, baby but I can't see straight anymore".[11] The lyrics deal with being completely intoxicated at a party.[12] The opening lyric "A RedOne" has often been misinterpreted as "red wine" but in actuality is a reference to producer RedOne.[13]

Critical reception[edit]

Matthew Chisling of AllMusic described the song as "a powerhouse of dance waves and infectiously produced beats".[14] Alexis Petridis of The Guardian called it a "beguilingly compulsive tale of pulling a drug-induced whitey, with a combination of clipped marching beats, sawing electronics and mild R&B flavor that bears a vague resemblance to Nelly Furtado's 'Maneater'".[9] Ben Norman of About.com said that the song "opens the album like a valkyrie leading the charge [...] riding triumphant ahead of her army. If you don't know this song, use your browser. I won't waste time explaining what it sounds like." However he also noted that the song is not groundbreaking and compared it to the music of Rihanna, Chris Brown and The Pussycat Dolls.[15] Bill Lamb from About.com called the song tame but catchy enough for Gaga to be noticed by mainstream. He also added that "'Just Dance' has strong energy and features Lady GaGa's striking voice, but it ultimately adds up to rather bland dance-pop." O'Donis' smooth vocals were also complimented.[16]

Evan Sawdey of PopMatters said that "Just Dance" is an intensely catchy single and is an excellent indicator of what the album was all about.[17] Ben Hogwood of musicOMH praised the song saying, "You won't get many more catchy party odes than the chart topping Just Dance this year, a polished gem set to lodge in your head for the next few weeks."[18] Freedom lu Lac of The Washington Post described the song to be "filled with mindlessly frothy synth-pop that matches low-grade dance grooves with GaGa's icy, almost disembodied vocals about dancing bliss".[19] Lynn Saxberg from the Ottawa Citizen, while reviewing Gaga's The Fame Ball Tour, called the song a perfect sing-along club anthem.[20] Sal Cinquemani from Slant Magazine wrote that the song resembles the "desperate train wreck you're likely to encounter getting wasted at any dive on the L.E.S. at four in the morning" as is emphasized by the lyrics.[21] Talia Kranes from BBC called the song irresistible and said that "the catchiness of her songs is sure to cement her place in the list of pop idols".[22]

Chart performance[edit]

In the United States, "Just Dance" was initially a club hit after its release, peaking at number two on both the Hot Dance Airplay and Hot Dance Club Play charts during the summer of 2008.[23] The song entered the Billboard Hot 100 chart at number 76 on August 16, 2008. After five months, it gradually rose to number two on the Hot 100, after selling 419,000 in downloads on January 10, 2009.[24] The next week, the song reached number one on the Hot 100. The single took a total of 22 weeks to hit the top spot, which is the longest climb to number one since Creed's "With Arms Wide Open" took 27 weeks before finally reaching number one in November 2000.[25] The song also reached the top of the Mainstream Top 40 chart, becoming Gaga's first number-one song.[26] "Just Dance" spent a total of 49 weeks on the Hot 100 and on May 29, 2015, the single was certified eight times platinum by the Recording Industry Association of America (RIAA) for shipment of eight million copies.[27] It was the second song to reach the six-million mark in paid downloads, following "I Gotta Feeling" by the Black Eyed Peas.[28][29][30] As of April 2016, "Just Dance" has sold 7,100,000 digital downloads in the United States and is the ninth best-selling digital single of all time in the United States.[31][32] In Canada, the song debuted at number 97 on the Canadian Hot 100 for the issue dated June 7, 2008.[33] It reached the top of the chart on August 23, 2008, and was present there for five consecutive weeks.[34] The song was certified six times platinum by the Canadian Recording Industry Association (CRIA) in June 2009, for sales of 240,000 copies in paid digital downloads.[35]

The track debuted at number 34 on the ARIA Singles Chart on July 21, 2008, and moved up to number 17 the next week. On September 15, 2008, the track reached the top of the chart.[36] "Just Dance" was certified three times platinum by the Australian Recording Industry Association (ARIA) for shipment of 210,000 copies.[36] The song was credited as the longest charting single in ARIA history, spending over 81 weeks in the top 100.[37] "Just Dance" debuted on the New Zealand charts at number 19, and reached a peak of number three.[38] It has been certified platinum by the Recording Industry Association of New Zealand (RIANZ) for shipment of 15,000 copies of the single.[39]

In the United Kingdom, "Just Dance" debuted at number three on the UK Singles Chart, on January 4, 2009. It rose to number one the next week with total sales of 65,764 copies, and remained at the top for three weeks.[40][41] In an interview with Daily Mail, Gaga explained her feelings on reaching number-one in the United Kingdom saying, "It's been a long running dream to have a big hit in the UK – my fans there are so sexy and the people are so innovative and free in how they think about pop culture and music. I was in my apartment in Los Angeles getting ready to go to dance rehearsal when they called and told me, and I just cried."[42] According to the British Phonographic Industry (BPI) the song was certified platinum, and in July 2016 it became Gaga's third song to pass one million combined sales in the United Kingdom based on streaming.[43] By January 2017, it had been streamed 6.3 million times in the nation according to the Official Charts Company,[44] and has sold 961,000 copies as of September 2017.[45] In Ireland, the song debuted at number eleven,[46] and after one week it peaked the chart.[47] The song also peaked the Dutch Top 40 on February 28, 2009.[48] Across Europe, "Just Dance" reached the top ten in Austria, Denmark, Finland, Germany, Norway, Sweden, Switzerland and the top twenty of Belgium (Flanders and Wallonia) and France.[49] Worldwide the song has sold over 10 million digital copies.[50]

Music video[edit]

Released in May 2008, the video was directed by music video director Melina Matsoukas, and is based on the thematic content of the song of being in a party.[51] The video begins with Gaga arriving with her background dancers at a house party, which seems to have ended. One of the dancers puts a Discolite Boombox on, blaring the music through the house. The crowd at the party appear to be sleeping in different areas, and are awoken by the music.[51] They all start to dance, and scenes of the party are intercut with scenes of a scantily dressed Gaga dancing in a poncho, with a disco ball or in a small rubber pool playing with an inflated killer whale.[51] She wears a blue, lightning-bolt shaped sticker beneath her right eye like that on the single cover, which paid tribute to the album cover of David Bowie's Aladdin Sane, as he is one of her musical idols.[52] O'Donis appears in the video being flanked by several girls during the "When I come through on the dance floor" interlude.[51] Cameo appearances are made by Akon and Space Cowboy. MTV called the video as an ode to the "Me Decade".[53] During an interview with Australian radio in September 2008, Gaga said that "[t]he whole video is performance art about being drunk at a party."[13] When asked about the shooting experience of the music video, Gaga explained,

"Oh it was so fun, it was amazing. For me it was like being on a Martin Scorsese set. I've been so low budget for so long, and to have this incredibly amazing video was really very humbling. It was really fun, but you'll see if you ever come to a video shoot of mine one day – I'm very private about those things, I don't really talk to everybody. I'm not like the party girl running around. I might even seem to be a bit of a diva. I'm sort of with myself, in my work head space worrying about costumes, and if extras look right, and placement. I don't just show up for things, you know. That video was a vision of mine. It was Melina the director who wanted to do something, to have a performance art aspect that was so pop but it was still commercial, but that felt like lifestyle. It was all those things, I love it."[54]

Live performances[edit]

In July, she performed the song for the first time at the swimsuit competition of the Miss Universe 2008 in Vietnam,[55] later Lady Gaga performed the song on many television shows in the United States. She appeared on Jimmy Kimmel Live!,[56] The Tonight Show with Jay Leno,[57] So You Think You Can Dance[58] and The Ellen DeGeneres Show.[59][60] In Australia, she performed on Sunrise, where her performance was condemned for lip-synching. Gaga denied it and released a statement saying "I was sick the day of the show but I absolutely, 100 per cent, was singing live. [...] have never lip-synched and never will. Even on my worst day, I never will."[61] In the United Kingdom, she performed the song on GMTV. She also performed the single during her AOL sessions.[62]

Gaga performing "Just Dance" during the 2010 leg of The Monster Ball Tour

"Just Dance" was added to the setlist of her first headlining The Fame Ball Tour, where it was performed before the Encore. As the performance for the acoustic version of "Poker Face" ended, Gaga exited from the stage and a video interlude called "The Face" starts telling about Gaga's alternate persona Candy Warhol and teaching her to speak.[63] Gaga appeared on the stage wearing a tutu shaped dress with pointed shoulderpads and peplum. Her dancers were clad in Louis Vuitton Steven Sprouse printed trousers which matched Gaga's shoes.[64] The backdrop changed to show blinking disco lights and Gaga stood wearing her video sunglasses, displaying the line "Pop Music Will Never Be Low Brow". A remix of the intro for "Just Dance" started and Gaga started singing the song, while moving around in choreographed dance moves.[65]

The song was also added to the setlist of The Monster Ball Tour. During the 2009 leg of the tour, she performed it as the second song of the list. After the opening song "Dance in the Dark", she strapped on a portable silver jewelled keyboard and started performing "Just Dance" while inside a white cube from which she emerged from the top, and the video screen came up. She was raised on a platform with a keytar over her shoulder as eight dancers in white bodysuits locked into steps below her.[66][67] During the revamped Monster Ball shows, in 2010-11, Gaga wore a futuristic "glitter ball suit"[68], and started the performance by playing on a keyboard hidden inside the hood of a Rolls Royce.[69] In May 2011, Gaga performed the song during Radio 1's Big Weekend in Carlisle, Cumbria.[70] She also made her debut performance on Irish TV screens performing Just Dance, on the Irish talk show Tubridy Tonight in January 2009.[71]

"Just Dance" was included on her third concert tour, the 2012 Born This Way Ball, where Gaga performed it on the extended stage walkway and shouted off to her fans for joining and dancing onstage. Emily Zemler from The Hollywood Reporter noted that "For all her preconceived speeches, these genuine moments resonated deeply with the audience, most of whom were dressed in tribute to the singer."[72] For the 2014 ArtRave: The Artpop Ball tour, Gaga combined "Just Dance" with short performances of "Poker Face" and 2010 single, "Telephone". While she danced and sang the songs, the backdrops displayed multiple images of Gaga writhing around, while wrapped in tinsel and moss.[73] Melissa Ruggieri from The Atlanta Journal-Constitution was impressed with Gaga's vocals and complimented her for performing "old songs" in her actual voice.[74] On February 5, 2017, Gaga performed the song during the Super Bowl LI halftime show.[75] In 2017, the song was added to the setlist of Gaga's two Coachella shows, and her current concert series, the Joanne World Tour.[76][77]
