Ratchet is a collaboration between Lady Gaga and Azealia Banks.

The release is currently not confirmed for Gaga's album, Artpop. The Idolater reported that while at the red carpet in London for the GQ Men Of The Year Awards on September 4, 2012, Banks confirmed rumors that she had been working with Gaga in the studio for the Artpop sessions. “I worked on a song for her,” Banks told Capital FM. “I don’t know if it will make her record. I hope it will…but we’ll wait and see.” Gaga included "ratchet" in a hashtag on a tweet sent to Banks on September 12th. DJ White Shadow also played a preview of the beat during Gaga's FAME launch at the Guggenheim in New York City on September 13th. The preview played hasn't been confirmed to be the original or a remixed version.
