Major Lazer‘s “Know No Better” featuring Travis Scott, Camila Cabello, and Quavo has been one of the most ubiquitous tracks of the summer. Providing their own take on the song, trap duo Slander have released a chilled out remix of this superstar collaboration.
Slander starts by slowing down Travis Scott’s unmistakeable autotuned vocals and layering them over an airy synth. An energetic build leads to a wavy future bass drop, until the intense double time percussion brings the track to a halting stop. Bringing in Camila Cabello and Quavo’s verses over minimal production, Slander showcases Major Lazer’s guests before getting right back into the full and explosive second drop.
Taylor Swift has been a little too quiet lately.

Major Lazer teamed up with Eko, the production company behind the video, and director Philip Andelman to deliver an innovative interactive version of their video for “Know No Better” featuring Travis Scott, Camila Cabello and Quavo.
Viewers can now click between the dream and reality storylines of the original video. The new version is one of the first of its kind and delivers a “lean forward experience,” according to executive producer Lihu Roter. He comments,

For his part, A-Trak calls on the talents of two of hip hop’s hottest artists, Migos frontman, Quavo, and “Broccoli” collaborator, Lil Yachty for his latest track “Believe.”
The track demonstrates A-Trak’s versatility as he effortlessly layers Quavo and Lil Yachty’s verses over a whimsical background beat that renders the song more of a lighthearted hip hop inspired tune than a thunderous dance floor anthem. A-Trak masters the stylistic shift, producing an infusion of hip hop and dance music elements that only further credits the rise of these combined genres.
