The singer surprised fans once again when she and husband Jay-Z dropped a collaboration album two weeks ago. The video for the first single, “Apesh*t,” featured the couple showing their powerful aura at the Louvre in Paris, and it included shots of the thousands of art pieces at the museum.
Beyoncé did it again.
For the second time in five years, the R&B queen released a studio album out of nowhere and hit the charts without any previous promotion. This time, she was joined by husband and producer Jay-Z, and they named the material “Everything is Love,” inspired on their love story.
The stars are currently in the middle of their joint “On The Run II Tour,” and on their London stop on June 16, they decided to surprise the crowd with their new music video for “Apesh*t” at the same time that the album was being released on Tidal.
As every visual material released by Beyoncé since “Partition,” the music video created a lot of controversy around social media for its charged symbolism. This time around, the couple rented the imponent Louvre Museum in Paris to shoot the video and used lots of paintings and sculptures to send a message of empowerment to the African America community.
Even though the whole video can be described as epic, one scene stood up for many people and is the one where Beyoncé is wildly dancing in a white gown in front of the “The Winged Victory of Samothrace” while her husband watches.
Beyoncé brought to life one of the verses of the song that says “we living lavish, I get expensive fabrics,” and looked stunning doing it.
The mother of three channeled her inner Greek goddess wearing a beautiful $140k wedding dress by Stephane Rolland that she accessorized with a ruffled cape from Alexis Mabille Haute Couture.
“The Winged Victory of Samothrace” is a marble Hellenistic sculpture of Nike, the Greek goddess of Victory, that was created around the 2nd century BC and is one of the most essential and valued statues of the museum and the world. One of the particularities of the sculpture is that is one of the few Hellenistic works that survived on its original form, instead of being a Roman copy.
Is not Queen B’s first wedding gown moment of the year.
As Celebritist reported before, a series of homemade clips from the couple’s lives shown on their tour revealed that they recently renewed their vows in a private ceremony, and Beyoncé, honoring her moniker of Queen B, used a gown worthy of royalty.
Her Galia Lahav Thelma Victorian wedding dress, which has a tag price of almost $15,000, is inspired by Queen Victoria’s wedding dress and is adorned with Swarovski crystals and pearls.
Beyoncé sure knows how to prove her worth through her fashion choices, and we’re glad that even after having three kids she still has an incredible body to show off her gowns.
