The Louvre Now Offering 90-Minute Tours Inspired by JAY-Z and Beyoncé’s “Apesh*t”

The 'Everything Is Love' single's Ricky Saiz-directed video was shot at the Louvre under tight time constraints and was an instant classic upon release. Now, the museum is offering visitors a chance to tour the key works featured in the video.

If the Carters' "Apeshit" video made you immediately start planning a trip to Paris to check out the Louvre, you're in luck.

The museum is now offering visitors a chance to embark on a 90-minute tour consisting of the 17 "key works" featured in the highly replayable video for Beyoncé and JAY-Z's Everything Is Love single, according to Artnet. The self-guided audio tour is currently only available in French, but a separate Huffington Post report confirms that additional languages will be added soon.

More info on the tour is available here via the official Louvre site.

The Carters pitched their idea for the Ricky Saiz-directed video to Louvre officials in May. Though museum reps have declined to disclose exactly how much the shoot ultimately cost the couple, other on-location shoots at the iconic art house have set creators back as much as $17,500. "The deadlines were very tight but the Louvre was quickly convinced because the synopsis showed a real attachment to the museum and its beloved artworks," a museum spokesperson toldVulture last month.

Speaking of pieces of art more than worth beholding in person, EVERYTHING IS LOVE celebrates its physical release today, meaning you can actually hold that remarkable cover art in your hands instead of just sliding your thumb across it on your phone. The album is supported by the global On the Run II tour, which makes its way stateside later this month with a stop in Cleveland. Opening acts for the North American leg are DJ Khaled and Chloe x Halle.
