Beyonce has hinted that her 2013 comeback single could be a new duet with Lady Gaga, entitled 'Ratchet'.

The photo shows the star snarling at the camera, while wearing gold hoop earrings that have 'Ratchet' in the middle of them.

This isn't the first time that Beyonce has hinted at the title - in a previous photo, she posted a photo of the same earrings next to a pair of shoes.

Website Media Takeout have claimed that they've already heard the track, and that 'Ratchet' is definitely the title.

They wrote, "The song sounded AMAZING. Had us bouncing up and down and er'rything!!!"

The title has sparked speculation that it could be another Lady Gaga collaboration, as Gaga has previously confirmed that she wrote a song with the same title - plus the two have teamed up together before.

Gaga posted a photo of herself wearing similar 'ratchet' earrings earlier this year, and Azealia Banks has recently said that she worked with Gaga on a track called 'Ratchet'.

Beyonce posted this snap to her Instagram account, fueling rumours of 'Ratchet'.

Beyonce's producer The Dream told Billboard, "She's got her stuff going. She took the summer to start recording, and now she's in a place where she’s ready to start gearing up to reveal her plan."

He added, "I'm sure there will probably be a couple records you hear before the Super Bowl gets here."
