Just in case you didn’t know what “ratchet” means, here are a few definitions from Urban Dictionary. My personal favorite is the last one ;)
A diva, mostly from urban cities and ghettos, that has reason to believe she is every mans eye candy. Unfortunately, she’s wrong.
A ghetto girl who is loud and obnoxious and constantly causing drama and usually trashy.
Ratchet is If Ghetto and Hot Shitty Mess had a baby, and that baby had no father, and became a stripper, then made a sex tape with an athlete, then became a reality star!
Looks like the rumored collaboration between Lady Gaga, Beyonce, Rihanna and Azealia Banks is becoming a reality. Banks was the first to start the rumor mill. She revealed she worked with the “Bad Romance” singer on a song called “Red Flame” which was later renamed to “Ratchet.” Then when both Gaga and Beyonce posted self-portraits sporting “ratchet” earrings, the internet really went crazy. Not sure how Rihanna got in the mix, but somehow she’s been included whenever the collaboration has been mentioned.
If this actually comes to fruition, this 2013 quartet could be the modern-day version of the “Lady Marmalade” collabo between Christina Aguilera, Lil ‘Kim, Pink and Mya back in 2001 for the musical Moulin Rouge. Not sure if they can reach the heights of what those four ladies did back then, but they certainly match their star wattage. Check out a very short snippet of “Ratchet” below which was produced by frequent Gaga partner DJ White Shadow.
Based on that short snippet, do you think this collaboration has potential? Personally, hit or bomb, I can’t wait for the four ladies to appear in the same music video. Beyonce and Lady Gaga appearing on “Videophone” and “Telephone” was epic enough, can you imagine Banks and Rihanna in the mix. I think my head would explode. Sound off below.
