Beyonce and Jay-Z are truly the most powerful couple in music right now.

 

They dropped an entire album together and also filmed a gorgeous video for their song "Apeshit" at the Louvre in Paris. The video was directed by Ricky Saiz, who also directed Beyonce's "Yonce" video.

 

The video shows stunning wide shots of the famed art halls with Jay-Z and Beyonce looking like a masterpiece. There's a shot of the stairs leading up to the "Winged Victory of Samothrace" with bodies moving slightly to the beat.

 

Beyonce sings, "I can't believe we made it," then the beat kicks in and she says, "This is why we thankful, hey, hell, see a crowd going apeshit."

 

The couple also appears in front of "The Coronation of Napoleon" and "The Mona Lisa" among other famous works of art.

The deadlines were very tight but the Louvre was quickly convinced because the synopsis showed a real attachment to the museum and its beloved artworks.

Bey and Jay are frequent visitors to the Louvre. A spokesperson for the museum told Vulture that the couple explained the idea for filing the video while on their last visit.

 

"The deadlines were very tight, but the Louvre was quickly convinced because the synopsis showed a real attachment to the museum and its beloved artworks," the spokesperson revealed.

 

Beyonce very cleverly teased the record on Instagram then told the audience at London Stadium that the album just dropped. The duo is currently on their intense OTRII tour in the U.K., and the show is a spectacle itself.
