Beyonce and JAY-Z Invade the Louvre in Opulent ‘Apeshit’ Video [WATCH]
Along with their fantastic collaborative album Everything Is Love, Beyoncé and JAY-Z also released an opulent visual for their braggadocious track “Apeshit.”
On the song, the Carters boast about their successes but also proclaim their undenying devotion to each other. For their six-minute-long visual, directed by Ricky Saiz, the hip-hop couple invade the Louvre in Paris and go, well, apeshit.
Throughout the clip, Hova and Beysus display their black love and black excellence around some of the most prestigious artwork in history. Bey and JAY look regal posing in front of the Mona Lisa painting and the Venus de Milo statue. We are also shown neoclassical paintings from Caravaggio, Jacques-Louis David, Théodore Géricault and more.
Although the video features the Carters together, it's Beyoncé who steals the show. In one segment, Bey and her team of dancers are swiveling their hips in front of Jacques-Louis David's Napoleon painting. She also turns up at the Great Sphinx statue while JAY simply looks on.
In another scene, the couple are standing in front of the Samothrace statue while a team of dancers are doing a form of pilates on the steps. Near the end of the clip, Hova and Beysus are performing in front of the Louvre Pyramid, a gorgeous glass-metal architecture designed by I.M. Pei.
In addition, Quavo, who also appears on the song, makes a cameo at the beginning of the video wearing wings and bending down in prayer.
