Beyoncé & Jay Z's 'Apes**t' music video was one of the main reasons for the Paris' iconic musem The Louvre's boost in visitor numbers.
Beyoncé & Jay Z's 'Apes**t' music video is no doubt one of the most memorable videos to a song released in 2018. The reason being it was shot entirely within the walls of The Paris Louvre.
However, it turns out it wasn't just the power couple who benefitted from the video... it was also the museum itself!
