"Dance Off" is a song by American hip hop duo Macklemore & Ryan Lewis featuring British actor and musician Idris Elba and American recording artist Anderson .Paak from their second studio album This Unruly Mess I've Made (2016). The song was officially released on February 25, 2016 as the second single only in Australia, New Zealand and selected countries of Europe. The song was not released in the United States.
The song received positive reviews from music critics. Killian Young was positive and said that "Dance Off" makes nod to the pillars of hip hop culture: rapping, DJing, tagging, breakdancing and piano groove. David Turner of MTV said that "Dance Off" sounds like rolling into the morgue by the 27th second, when the song says "I grab my ankle and pull it up / And do that thing where I move my butt". Spencer Kornhaber of The Atlantic commented that the song sounds like the director Vincent Price in "Thriller" (of Michael Jackson), and said that Macklemore "frets about the adequacy of what’s between his legs. In his world, music does not help you transcend your insecurities—it heightens them.".
