Check out Jay-Z and Beyoncé's new "Apeshit" video below. The album was announced on Saturday during their "On the Run II" show in London.

Of course, Black Twitter lost it!

'But love is deeper than your pain and I believe you can change'.

So given that the whole theme of the Louvre is art, Beyonce and Jay took on that concept and wore pieces that looked like, well, art. In the album, the couple can be heard opening up about everything from the love child rumour to the cheating scandal.

Jay-Z hinted to the release during an interview with the New York Times previous year. Called "Everything Is Love", the announcement was made by TIDAL, the streaming company owned by Jay-Z.

"Every night we in the endzone / Tell the NFL we in stadiums, too", he raps, likely referring to the racial dynamics in American football where nearly entirely white owners employ mostly African American players.

Other credit highlights of the album feature Ty Dolla $ign for the track 'Boss.' TV personality David Andrew Sitek is a writer and producer of a track titled 'Lovehappy'. Bey lovingly leans into Jay, wearing a traditional headdress and shawl wrapped around her shoulders, as Hova returns the love.

Touted as the first full-length release by the couple, the album shows the couple singing and rapping in nine songs. They also manage to shade the Grammys, which snubbed him this year after he had earned the most nominations. The album was first hinted at when HOV spoke with The New York Times about 4:44 stating "We were using our art nearly like a therapy session". So her album came out as opposed to the joint album that we were working on.
