"Just Dance" is a song by Lady Gaga

After writing for various artists including The Pussycat Dolls, this was Lady GaGa's first solo single release.

This features Colby O'Donis and Akon. Lady GaGa and O'Donis are both signed to Akon's Kon Live record label.

Lady GaGa wrote this song a day after arriving in Los Angeles from New York. The singer-songwriter told HX Magazine: "I was taken very quickly out of my party lifestyle. I wrote it instantly - like it flew out of my body." She explained in the same interview the meaning of the song as "If you've ever been so high that it's, like, scary, the only way you can deal with it is not deal with it, so you just kind of dance through the intoxication."

GaGa told about the song's promo: "That video was a vision of mine. It was Molina 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."

Lady GaGa took her stage name from the Queen song "Radio Ga Ga." The New York artist's real name is Stefani Germanotta.

GaGa explained on her website that the underlying theme of The Fame album "is about how anyone can feel famous. Pop culture is art. It doesn't make you cool to hate pop culture, so I embraced it and you hear it all over The Fame. But, it's a sharable fame. I want to invite you all to the party. I want people to feel a part of this lifestyle."

After topping the singles tallies in Canada and Australia in 2008, this song ascended to pole position in the same week in January on both the UK and US charts.

This was the first #1 song on the Hot 100 to include the word "dance" since February 1991, when by C + C Music Factory's "Gonna Make You Sweat (Everybody Dance Now)" ascended to the top position.

This reached pole position on the song's 22nd week on the Hot 100. It was the longest trip to the top since Creed's "With Arms Wide Open" reached #1 in its 27th week in November 2000.

Lady GaGa performed this at the inaugural NewNowNext Awards, which were broadcast on the Logo network in June 2008. Logo is targeted to the gay community, which comprises much of Lady GaGa's fan base.
