Watching Beyoncé and Jay-Z’s music video for “Apeshit,” the hit single off their collaborative album Everything Is Love, one is left with an adrenaline rush of dizzying energy as the sumptuous visuals linger in your mind. After the high wears off, the message the Carters want you to receive is clear: These black recording artists definitively belong in the Louvre.
Well, the Louvre agrees. Not even a month after the music video dropped, the Louvre is offering a guided tour so that you can “follow this trail to discover the iconic artworks from Jay-Z and Beyoncé’s music video ‘Apes**t.’ ” The tour will take you through the Paris museum where visitors will see the 17 pieces of art shown throughout the video.
You will see works of art such as the “Mona Lisa”, “The Wedding Feast of Cana”, and “The Great Sphinx of Tanis”. The 90-minute tour, which the museum is calling a “thematic trail,” is currently available from Wednesday through Sunday. Those at the museum on Monday and Tuesday can walk in the Carters’ footsteps on their own with help from a map proved by the Louvre.

Bey and Jay are currently co-headlining their On The Run II tour across the country. They filmed the video back in May after renting out the Louvre.
This isn’t the first time the Louvre has offered a tour based on a celebrity. Back in 2016, Black Eyed Peas’ frontman will.i.am released a 12-minute documentary titled will.i.am at the Louvre, which focuses on the artist’s love of the museum’s Department of the Decorative Arts. The museum created a guided tour based on his experience.
