The Hip Hop heavyweights recorded their top live performance of the song and added Paris scenes, Will Ferrell and plenty of lights.
The music video of "Ni**as in Paris" uses the footage from Kanye West and Jay-Z's Watch the Throne tour and mashes it up with Paris landscapes, clips from Will Ferrell-starring film "Blades of Glory" and overflowing strobe lights. The rappers have just premiered the West-directed video on Thursday, February 9 on MTV.com.
The footage was mainly taken during the duo's performance at the Staples Center in Los Angeles but it is assumed that West added casted female audience to enhance the visual attraction. Since there are kaleidoscopic effects and flashing lights that can be dizzying, the video gave a warning at the beginning that it is not for those who have photosensitive epilepsy.
"Ni**as in Paris", which is taken from Jay-Z and Kanye West's collaborative album "Watch the Throne", has peaked at number 5 on Billboard Hot 100 chart. The song has reached No. 1 on the both the R&B/Hip-Hop Songs and Rap Songs charts.
