She’s coming! Beyonce gets in touch with her inner thug diva in this latest snap that was posted on her Instagram earlier today. In the snap, Beyonce is rocking some earrings, with the word ‘Ratchet’ embedded inside. The fact that this is the second photo she has posted of the earring has sharp eyed fans believing she is sending serious hints about her new music. A few months ago, Lady Gaga told fans on her own website that she wrote a song with Azealia Banks called ‘Ratchet’ which would feature a female collaborator. Along with that admission came a photo of Gaga wearing the exact same ‘Ratchet’ earrings. Excited fans are now believing that Beyonce and Gaga have collaborated once again for their new eras. Personally, I think it’s all too good to be true and the disappointment will kick in once it’s discovered that this is all just a big fat (rather smart) coincidence, but who knows? In more speculation, rumour is rife that two new Beyoncé songs are being tested across several Top 40 stations.
‘Rollercoaster’ is allegedly an electro-house song by The Cataracs with Miguel serving as the male collaborator. The other rumoured song is ‘Twelve Roses’, a pounding pop, mid-tempo ballad helmed by Stargate and Sia Furler (the two forces behind Rihanna‘s smash hit ‘Diamonds’). Sending two different songs to radio is a given possibility that she might be trying to rehash the Sasha Fierce era. Bear in mind, all this is speculation so don’t take it for gospel just yet. Not to put a dampener on all this buzz, but a part of me is thinking it’s fake. Song titles at this stage are not usually disclosed so prematurely and Beyonce is a pro when it comes to keeping things underwraps. Her team does not play when it comes to her marketing and PR, so you’d think they’d save it for the massive press release in the coming weeks. Actually, I still think that’s the case.
But rumour or not, it’s still exciting that so much Beyonce scoop is pouring in. Tomorrow night, she will play a new years eve gig live at the Wynn Theater on December 31st. Her dancers are already posting pics of the rehearsal on Twitter (none of which include Beyonce of course). The gig is private so there’s no guarantee that we’ll get videos or photos but her comeback truly is in full force.
