Video: Beyoncé and Jay Z – ‘Bang Bang: Part One’

Beyoncé and Jay Z

Just days after wrapping their “On the Run Tour” with two sold-out shows in Paris, Beyoncé and Jay Z relive the magic in Part 1 of “Bang Bang.”

Directed by filmmaker and photographer Dikayl Rimmasch and soundtracked by an Ennio Morricone classic, “Bang Bang” is a trilogy of short films starring the couple that was shown during their two-and-a-half-month long tour.

In the black-and-white clip, the Carters play a modern day Bonnie and Clyde as they drive through the desert.

“In my first conversation on the telephone with Jay Z he explained his concept of On the Run,” Rimmasch told Nowness. “He said: ‘We’re not trying to do this literally, it’s not that we’re Bonnie and Clyde. We’re on the run from everything. On the run from becoming a cliché. On the run from doing the same thing again.”

“Bang Bang” is also being used in the trailer for their “On the Run” HBO special, which airs Saturday.

Beyoncé and Jay Z are shutting the divorce rumors all the way down. Following their appearance at the MTV VMAs, the Carters cozied up on Day 2 of the Budweiser Made in America Festival in L.A. on Sunday. In between sets from Rita Ora, Chance the Rapper, and Cypress Hill, the Roc Nation mogul was spotted on the grounds at Grand Park.

Clad in his “OTR” tour gear and a hat, he joined the crowd while watching Steve Aoki’s EDM set alongside his wife and L.A. Mayor Eric Garcetti.

The couple also made its way to the main stage to check out John Mayer and Kanye West on the steps of City Hall. While watching from a balcony, Jay wrapped his arms around Mrs. Carter, who lovingly gazed into her husband’s eyes.

During one of his famous rants, Kanye acknowledged Jay’s role in putting the festival together. “I don’t want to go over the top with it out of respect for my big homie Jay Z,” said ‘Ye.

Jay celebrated a successful end to the first-ever L.A. festival and third annual Philly fest. “L.A. the people have spoken! No major incidents just GREAT music. 70k 2 days. Philly 3x Made in America. In the heart of both cities! 90k,” he tweeted.
