Beyoncé, Jay Z, & Blue Ivy Visit the Louvre

Beyoncé and Jay Z

After wrapping their “On the Run Tour” with two sold-out shows last month, the Carters returned to Paris this week. During their trip, Beyoncé, Jay Z, and Blue Ivy shut down the Louvre for a private visit. Bey has shared some candid photos from their trip to the famed art museum on her website.

The famous family posed in front of the world’s most famous masterpiece, the Mona Lisa, which Jay Z name checked on “Picasso Baby.” Bey took a selfie with the Greek statues, while her two-and-a-half-year-old daughter snapped photos of her own on her camera. Jay carried Blue in his arms as they strolled the halls and in one adorable photo, Blue stood on the floor vent while the air blew up her dress.

The couple has reportedly been shopping for a house in Paris, where they got engaged and where Blue Ivy was conceived.

The New York Post corroborates DJ Skee’s report that the Carters are working on a “top secret” joint album. They have been recording together and plan to release the project later this year or in early 2015. The album will reportedly be accompanied by simultaneous videos and a movie.

Check out more photos from the Carters’ picture-perfect day at the museum.
