“Just Dance” is the debut single by American singer Lady Gaga. She co-wrote the song with Akon and his producer RedOne. It also features vocals from Colby O’Donis and was released on April 8, 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” lyrically speaks about being intoxicated at a club.

“Just Dance” received acclaim from music critics, who complimented its club anthem-like nature and the sound associated with it. The song was a sleeper hit, spending almost five months on the Billboard Hot 100 before finally peaking at the chart’s summit in January 2009. Outside of the United States, “Just Dance” topped the charts Australia, Canada, Greece, Ireland, the Netherlands, and the United Kingdom, as well as the top ten of the charts in the Czech Republic, Denmark, Germany, Hungary, Israel, New Zealand, Norway, Spain, and Sweden. 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 movie set. “Just Dance” was performed by Gaga in a number of live appearances, such as Jimmy Kimmel Live! and The Tonight Show with Jay Leno, all of her concert tours, and the Super Bowl LI halftime show. She usually plays on a keytar while performing 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)”.

[Intro: Lady Gaga & Akon]
Truth!
RedOne
Konvict
Gaga (Oh-oh, eh)

[Verse 1: Lady Gaga & Akon]
I’ve had a little bit too much, much (Oh, oh, oh-oh)
All of the people start to rush (Start to rush by)
A dizzy twister dance, can’t find my drink or man
Where are my keys? I lost my phone, phone (Oh, oh, oh-oh)

[Pre-Chorus: Lady Gaga]
What’s goin’ on, on the floor?
I love this record, baby, but I can’t see straight anymore
Keep it cool, what’s the name of this club?
I can’t remember, but it’s alright, a-alright

[Chorus: Lady Gaga]
Just dance
Gonna be okay, da-da-doo-doot-n
Just dance
Spin that record, babe, da-da-doo-doot-n
Just dance
Gonna be okay
Da-da-da-dance, dance, dance
Just, j-j-just dance

[Verse 2: Lady Gaga & Akon]
Wish I could shut my playboy mouth (Oh, oh, oh-oh)
How’d I turn my shirt inside out? (Inside out, right)
Control your poison, babe, roses have thorns, they say
And we’re all gettin’ hosed tonight (Oh, oh, oh-oh)

[Pre-Chorus: Lady Gaga]
What’s goin’ on, on the floor?
I love this record, baby, but I can’t see straight anymore
Keep it cool, what’s the name of this club?

Just, j-j-just

[Verse 3: Colby O’Donis]
When I come through on the dance floor, checking out that catalogue (Hey)
Can’t believe my eyes, so many women without a flaw (Hey)
And I ain’t gon’ give it up, steady, tryna pick it up like a call (Hey)
I’ma hit it, I’ma beat it up, latch onto it until tomorrow, yeah
Shorty, I can see that you got so much energy
The way you twirlin’ up them hips ’round and ’round
And there is no reason at all why you can’t leave here with me
In the meantime, stay, let me watch you break it down and

[Chorus: Lady Gaga & Akon]
Dance
Gonna be okay, da-da-doo-doot-n (Oh)
Just dance (Ooh yeah)
Spin that record, babe, da-da-doo-doot-n
Just dance (Ooh yeah)
Gonna be okay, da-da-doo-doot-n (Ooh yeah)
Just dance (Ooh yeah)
Spin that record, babe, da-da-doo-doot-n
Just dance (Oh)
Gonna be okay, da-da-da-dance (Gonna be okay)
Dance, dance (Yeah)
Just, j-j-just dance (Oh)

[Interlude: Akon]

[Breakdown: Lady Gaga & Akon]
Half psychotic, sick, hypnotic, got my blueprint, it’s symphonic
Half psychotic, sick, hypnotic, got my blueprint, electronic
Half psychotic, sick, hypnotic, got my blueprint, it’s symphonic
Half psychotic, sick, hypnotic, got my blueprint, electronic

[Bridge: Lady Gaga & Akon]
Go, use your muscle, carve it out, work it, hustle
(I got it, just stay close enough to get it on)
Don’t slow, drive it, clean it, Lysol, bleed it
Spend the last dough (I got it) in your pock-o (I got it)

[Chorus: Lady Gaga]
Just dance
Gonna be okay, da-da-doo-doot-n
Just dance
Spin that record, babe, da-da-doo-doot-n
