The music video for "Apes**t," the second track from The Carters' (a.k.a. Beyoncé and Jay-Z) surprise album, Everything Is Love, is here—and it's sensational. Peppered with references to the Grammys, the Super Bowl, their individual and collective success, and even their relationship ("I can't believe we made it" doesn't feel subtle), it's also set in the freaking Louvre. Yes, that Louvre.

This video has the Mona Lisa, for God's sake. It has Beyoncé in outfits that, believe it or not, make the Mona Lisa look kinda dull. It has Jay-Z and Beyoncé singing while gazing into one another's eyes. It has a whole lot of dancing in front of world-respected artwork.

Without further ado, its 16 most breathtaking moments:
