Beyonce Hints at Possible Lady Gaga/Azealia Banks Collaboration
Beyonce has posted two new photos to her Instagram account that have spurred rumors she may be working with Lady Gaga and/or Azealia Banks on a new single. Beyonce posted two photos to her Instagram account of earrings–one pic where she wears them and one where she isn’t–that are engraved with the word “Ratchet.” You can see the pics below. Soon after, rumors begin to swirl that they are signifiers of an upcoming single with Gaga and possibly Banks.
The source of the rumors came from the fact that Gaga had posted her own picture in November of identical “Ratchet” earrings. Gaga has mentioned the month previous that she was doing a song with Azealia Banks and that the song in question would likely be released this month as the lead single from ARTPOP, her upcoming album.
Banks had said in September, “I worked with Lady Gaga, but I worked with Lady Gaga from afar. We worked via email and via Internet. We have a song called ‘Red Flame’ and a song called ‘Ratchet,’ but I don’t know what she’s doing with it. She’s going to release it when she wants to release it.”
