This song is from Barbie: The Album, the soundtrack to the 2023 movie Barbie. The first live-action adaptation of the iconic Barbie fashion dolls by Mattel, the film takes viewers on a journey alongside Barbie herself. As she awakens to the imperfections of her life, she embarks on an adventure to find happiness in the real world, accompanied by her beloved partner, Ken. It draws inspiration from Mary Pipher's 1994 non-fiction book, Reviving Ophelia, which examines the effects of societal pressures on American adolescent girls. Atlantic and Warner Records released "Dance The Night Away" as the soundtrack's lead single on May 25, 2023.

As well as providing the lead single, Dua Lipa also has a cameo appearance in the film playing a mermaid variation of Barbie.

"Dance the Night" is an anthem that embodies the spirit of dancing through the night, transcending sadness caused by a turbulent romance. Dua Lipa sets the stage on the first verse, already captivating the dance floor. As the verse unfolds and temperatures rise, the "Levitating" singer shrugs off the challenge effortlessly, declaring her ability to withstand the heat and shine brilliantly. Lipa's romance may have encountered obstacles along the way, but as she surrenders to the music, none of that matters. Every relationship faces turbulence and trials, but when the night arrives, tears have no place in her world of dance and celebration.
