Major Lazer inspires in their new “Know No Better” music video.
The Philip Andelman directed clip flashes between a young boy’s reality and fantasy life – which includes dancing in studios and kissing his dream girl. The fantasy world includes cameos from Camila Cabello and Travis Scott, who feature on the song. Diplo also appears towards the end of the video, when the boy’s reality and fantasy finally meet.
Andelman said in a statement that the fantasy resembled one of his own younger self:
“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” comes from Major Lazer’s EP of the same name, which came out last month. Check out the video below.
