The Internet is currently blazing with rumours that the song, initially believed to have been a collaboration between Lady GaGa and Azealia Banks, “Ratchet” will act as the dual comeback song for Beyoncé and Lady GaGa’s new albums with Rihanna and Azealia featured on the track also.
It’s safe to say that all four artist’s fan bases are going crazy on social networks right now after a picture was posted cluing up the four acts’ hints of a song together. This song could be this decade’s answer to Lady Marmalade and will set Azealia, Beyoncé and GaGa’s year up perfectly with new albums being released by all three artists.
As a devoted fan of Rihanna, Azealia Banks and Beyoncé – and an ex-’Little Monster’ – I am very excited as the prospect of this collaboration happening. Mostly because of the thought of the performances and the music video, and one performance in particular – Beyoncé is headlining the Superbowl in February (the same month Azealia’s album is released) so it would be the perfect opportunity to debut the song with all 3 acts joining the Crazy In Love songstress on the field.
I am 150% on board with this, and if it is true then it is the best marketing strategy for a group of artists to come up with in a LONG time.
Did I mention the Grammy Awards are in February, also?
