Major Lazer

Major Lazer surprised fans back in June with the Travis Scott, Camila Cabello and Quavo collab "Know No Better," tied to a six-track EP of the same name, no less. And as the dancehall-influenced, summery track continues to spread -- denting the Billboard Hot 100 and notching No. 9 on the Dance Streaming charts -- the best "Know No Better" remixes are spreading, too.

The Lazer trio released a stellar pack of eight official remixes last week, but for our list we couldn't resist spicing up the mix with some of the best unofficial "Know No Better" remixes on the web. 

Below, check out Billboard Dance's five favorite finds, in no particular order. 

Major Lazer - "Know No Better" (Bad Bunny Remix)

Puerto Rican trap star Bad Bunny brings the reggaeton goods on this spicy official rework, kicking the song off with a couple of his own slurred, magnetic verses that muse in Spanish about buying a lover Gucci and Chanel. After some additional snappy percussion that stays true to Bunny's Latin trap movement, the original track drops back in.

Major Lazer - "Know No Better" (Slander Remix)

Twinkling, breezy chimes mimic the track's original melody in this "Know No Better" official remix, which delivers a thudding new bassline and slo-mo'd vocals. But things don't stay downtempo for long. The beat picks up around the 1:20 mark with a brand new metallic, shimmering drop that manages to add a new level of euphoria to the track's already-sunny sound.

Major Lazer - "Know No Better" (Laibert Remix)

Laibert gives "Know No Better" a melodic house makeover in this official switch-up, which offers a minimalist backdrop of tribal drums, melodic keys and the sound of wind blowing. 

Major Lazer - "Know No Better" (Stephen Murphy & Kyle Meehan Remix)

Rapid-fire cymbal clashes and a smoldering new made-for-the-club beat bring this track from the poolside lounge to the late-night dance floor. But the remix also makes our list for its range of textures -- from bouncy piano keys to delicately layered percussion effects, this one is packed with surprises.

Major Lazer - "Know No Better" (Ellis Remix)

This "Know No Better" remix sounds pretty similar to the original for the first minute or so, save for some finger-snapping new beats and some dark, simmering production. But we bet you won't expect what comes after the drop -- a jerky, popping, infectious new beat that makes the original even more danceable.
