Watch Beyonce and Jay-Z Perform ‘Apes–t’ For the First Time in Paris
Beyonce and Jay-Z fans have been going apes--t ever since they dropped their surprise album as The Carters, Everything Is Love, a month ago; however, the celebrity couple hadn't performed the joint record's first single, "Apes--t," on their On The Run II tour. That is, until now.
On Sunday (July 15), Bey and Jay treated fans at Paris' Stade de France to an invigorating live debut of the hit song. The timing was perfect, considering they filmed the track's music video at the Louvre museum in Paris. Oh yeah, and it was the same day France won the World Cup. July 15, 2018 will now go down in French history.
In fan-filmed footage, Beyonce thanks the crowd before introducing her "beautiful husband" to the stage. The Mona Lisa flashes on the big screen as the intro begins. "They're doing 'Apes--t'!" the fan filming the video exclaims. As soon as the couple bursts into song, the crowd lost it, which is really the only acceptable response to a song with a name like this one.
