Dominique also got an Instagram shout-out from Beyoncé, who posted a photo of Dominique seated in front of one of the Louvre’s large-scale paintings. The post received more than 2 million likes.

Ashley and Dominique are currently performing with Beyoncé and Jay-Z in the music power-couple’s “On the Run” tour across Europe and the United States.
