Major Lazer’s video for “Know No Better,” featuring Travis Scott, Camila Cabello and Quavo, debuts today—watch it below.
“For me, Major Lazer is the ne plus ultra of dance music videos,” says director Philip Andelman. “It’s always been a dream of mine to work with them and be included in their insane canon. Which is where the idea for the video started, with a daydream. I used to space out all through high school about being the sickest guitarist in the world to impress girls but all I could play in real life was a quarter-speed version of Slash’s solo from ‘Sweet Child O’Mine.’ I thought it could be fun to do a video that married a kid’s daydream of being a Major Lazer backup dancer (i.e. the ultimate goal for any dancer out there) with the reality of quotidian ass-kickings and unbearable siblings.”
“Know No Better”—streamed more than 100 million times to date—is the title track from the band’s new EP surprise-released last month, two years to the day after their groundbreaking LP ‘Peace is the Mission‘.
