Jay-Z and Beyonce Use The Louvre as Their Playground in “Apes**t” Video
This isn't even fair. On top of all the G.O.O.D. music we've been getting the last few weeks, Jay-Z and Beyoncé decide to stop the world with the release of their new album, Everything Is Love, on Saturday night (June 16). They even dropped a video for the song, "Apeshit," to boot.
The Carters are stuntin' hard on this one as they take over the world-famous Louve museum in Paris, France, home of the Mona Lisa and other seminal artworks, in the Ricky Saiz-directed video.
Making use of different locations in the museum, the power couple and a group of dancers get busy over the bouncy Pharrell-produced track. Bey flexes with ease with the assistance of adlibs from Quavo. "Rah, gimme my check/Put some respeck on my check/Or pay me in equity, pay me in equity," she spits. "Or watch me reverse out the deck (skrrt)/He got a bad bitch, bad bitch/We live it lavish, lavish/I got expensive fabrics/I got expensive habits."
The ageless Hov comes through in the clutch, capping off the lit cut. "I'm a gorilla in the fuckin' coop/Finna pull up in the zoo," he raps. "I'm like Chief Keef meet Rafiki/Who been Lion King to you/Pocket watch it like kangaroos/Tell these clowns we ain't amused/Banana clips for that monkey business/4-5 got change for you."
Jay and Bey are in the midst of the U.K. run of their On the Run II Tour. Following their stint overseas, they will head back to the States to kick off the North American leg of the tour with a July 25 show in Cleveland.
