Filmed in a deserted Louvre, among backdrops like the 'Mona Lisa,' the video stars its leading duo, a group of synchronized dancers and world-class art.

Beyoncé and Jay-Z's new joint album may be a Tidal exclusive, but their "Apeshit" video can now be seen on YouTube.

"Apeshit," the first featured track from Everything Is Love — the couple's surprise project, billed as The Carters — gets a luxe treatment in its Ricky Saiz-directed video, which was shot in May in Paris.

Filmed in a deserted Louvre, among backdrops like the Mona Lisa, the visual for "Apeshit" stars its leading duo, a group of synchronized dancers and world-class art.

"I said no to the Super Bowl/ You need me, I don't need you/ Every night we in the endzone/ Tell the NFL we in stadiums too," Jay-Z raps in the song. Later in his verse, he calls out the Grammys for his 2017 album 4:44 winning no awards, despite being a leading nominee: "Tell the Grammys fuck that 0 for 8 shit/ Have you ever seen the crowd goin' apeshit?"
