PARIS — It was inevitable, given the force of nature that is Queen Bey, otherwise known as Beyoncé.

Following the debut of her new music video ‘Apesh*t’ last month, which also stars her husband, rap mogul Jay-Z, the Musée du Louvre in Paris – where the video was filmed – has begun offering 90-minute Jay-Z and Beyoncé tours.

Currently available only in French, the tours highlight 17 artworks that were featured in the music video, including ‘The Raft of the Medusa’ by Théodore Géricault, and ‘The Coronation of Napoleon’ by Jacques Louis David. According to Lonely Planet, the tours are self-guided and may soon be offered in additional languages.

The ‘Apesh*t’ video, from Jay-Z & Beyoncé’s most recent ‘Everything is Love’ album, has been viewed over 60 million times on Youtube. Taking place entirely in the Louvre, the video has catapulted the acclaimed museum to the forefront of pop culture, introducing a whole new generation of young music fans to some of the world’s most revered artworks.
