Beyoncé and Jay-Z in 'Apeshit' video

The Louvre now offers a tour about Beyoncé, Jay-Z, and the Apeshit video

The tour will focus on key artworks seen in the iconic music video

You finally have a good reason to book a flight to Paris and it’s all thanks to Beyoncé and Jay-Z.

The power couple took over the Louvre for the music video for “Apeshit”, the lead single off of their first joint album together (released as The Carters), Everything Is Love. Now, thanks to a new report from French outlet Agence France-Presse, it looks like Bey and Jay still have their hooks in one of the world’s most prominent museums because a new tour focused on the art seen in the “Apeshit” video is currently on offer. 

The tour is reportedly 90 minutes long and takes visitors through the museum as they hit “Apeshit” hotspots like “The Winged Victory at Samothrace”, “Portrait of a Negress”, “Venus de Milo”, and, of course, the “Mona Lisa”. The route is currently available to preview on the Louvre's website. A quick glance shows that tour will take viewers to 17 major works spanning a number of key periods in art history. There are only two big catches about this tour to take into account. The first is that the audio tour is only offered on Wednesdays, Thursdays, Saturdays, and Sundays. The second is that you’ll have to brush up on your French because, for the time being, the tour appears to only be conducted in French. 

It would seem that the Louvre and the Carters are now inextricably linked, as evidenced through the tour, the “Apeshit” video, and as a spokesman noted while discussing how the couple locked down the museum for the video shoot, “a real attachment.” Speaking to Vulture in June, the spokesman commented that “the deadlines [for the shoot] were very tight but the Louvre was quickly convinced because the [“Apeshit”] synopsis showed a real attachment to the museum and its beloved artworks.”
