Major Lazer drop surprise new EP featuring Camila Cabello, Quavo and more

Major Lazer have dropped a surprise new EP, two years to the day since the release of their LP Peace is the Mission.

Know No Better is a six-track EP full of huge collaborations which continues to expand upon the group’s global sound. Taking inspiration from their travels to countries such as Cuba, Africa and South America, the EP combines elements from numerous locations whilst also paying homage to their island roots.

The EP’s lead single is the title track ‘Know No Better’ featuring Travis Scott, Camila Cabello and Quavo. The track was recently debuted during one of Major Lazer’s live performances. Additionally, Camila joined the trio on stage to perform it in Miami a few days ago.

Additionally, the EP includes collaborations with global artists who share Major Lazer’s mission of “making the world smaller by making the party bigger.” ‘Buscando Huellas’ is a reggaeton anthem featuring J Balvin and Sean Paul, whilst ‘Particula’ features South African rapper Nasty C and Nigerian artists Ice Prince and Patoranking, and Jidenna. Long time Major Lazer collaborator Busy Signal appears on ‘Jump’ whilst Brazilian icons Anitta and Pabllo Vittar deliver the samba vibes on ‘Sua Cara’. The EP is rounded off with ‘Front of the Line’ which features Machel Montano and Konshens. The track will feature in Bacardi’s Sound of Rum initiative over the coming weeks.

The globally influenced EP follows on from the trio’s record-breaking singles ‘Run Up’ featuring PARTYNEXTDOOR and Nicki Minaj, ‘Cold Water’ featuring Justin Bieber and MØ, and ‘Lean On’ featuring DJ Snake and MØ which recently hit two billion views on YouTube.
