Dreams Come True In Major Lazer’s “Know No Better” Video
Major Lazer’s star-studded “Know No Better,” which features Camila Cabello, Travis Scott and Quavo, was touted as a Song Of The Summer contender when it arrived in early June. Despite healthy streaming numbers (100 million and counting), the banger hasn’t made a huge impact on the charts — but that could change with the arrival of a feel-good video. Directed by Philip Andelman, the clip juxtaposes the everyday life of a school kid against his daydreams of dancing for Major Lazer. Reality and fantasy collide by the conclusion.
“It’s always been a dream of mine to work with [Major Lazer] and be included in their insane canon,” the director says. “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… 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.”
