#Beyoncé and #JayZ shot their #APESHIT video in the world-famous #LouvreMuseum in Paris. The museum houses priceless works of art and masterpieces such as the #MonaLisa, “The Coronation of the Emperor Napoleon I,” “The Oath of the Horatii,” “The Portrait of Marie-Guillemine Benoist,” and “The Winged Victory of Samothrace” which were featured in the video.

In “BLACK EFFECT”, Beyoncé says, “I will never let you shoot the nose off my Pharaoh” which is in reference to the Great Sphinx of Giza whose nose was broken off (some say by Napoleon). And here Jay and Bey are reclaiming their time in front of the Great Sphinx of Tanis—the most prized possession in the Louvre’s Egyptian wing—with a quick turn up, dancers and all.

The Carters included images of “The Oath of the Horatii” which depicts brotherhood and “Hermes Fastening His Sandal” which seems to mirror the #TakeAKnee movement.
