Azealia Banks, Lady GaGa, Beyonce and Rihanna Collaboration 'Ratchet' Teased

A snippet of the rumored joint track by Banks, the Mother Monster, Queen Bey and RiRi has leaked out online.

After initial speculations came out that Azealia Banks, Lady GaGa, Beyonce Knowles, and Rihanna were working on a collaboration entitled "Ratchet", a snippet of the track may have just leaked out. In what seems to be this generation's "Lady Marmalade", the four divas' rumored team-up is somewhat duplicating the 2001 musical feat done by Christina Aguilera, Lil' Kim, Mya and Pink.

Produced by frequent GaGa collaborator DJ White Shadow, the track opens with sirens followed by a deep voice that booms "ratchet" that segues into the hip-hop beat in the 24-second snippet. The short "Ratchet" audio file was posted on SoundCloud as a DJ White Shadow demo of the Lady GaGa track.

The leak follows a sequence of hints from the rumored collaborators on the "Ratchet" single. Banks had first broken news about hooking up with the "Poker Face" singer. "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," she said.

GaGa then teased about another team-up with Beyonce after she told a fan via Twitter that there would be a sequel to "Telephone", their first collaboration, then posted her ratchet earrings on her Instagram back in November. Just before 2012 ended, R'n'B-pop diva Beyonce also hinted about the possible collab as she posted on her Instagram two photos of hooped earrings engraved with the word "ratchet".
