Le Freak Remix Video:Unofficial Remix 2019 from Djmastersound Vidéo.
The Original Song:
Billboard magazine ranked it as the number 3 song for 1979.[ The song was ranked number 21 on Billboard magazine’s top 100 songs of the first 55 years of the “Hot 100” chart.] In 2018, it was selected for preservation in the National Recording Registry by the Library of Congress as being “culturally, historically, or artistically significant.”[This song commemorates Studio 54 in New York City for its notoriously long customer waiting lines, exclusive clientele, and discourteous doormen. According to guitarist Nile Rodgers, the song was devised during New Year’s Eve of 1977, as a result of his and bassist Bernard Edwards’ being refused entrance to Studio 54, where they had been invited by Grace Jones, due to her failure to notify the nightclub’s staff. He said the lyrics of the refrain were originally “Fuck off!” rather than “Freak out!”; for the documentary “How to Make It in the Music Business”, he said that ‘fuck off’ was what the doorman had said to him when he slammed the door on them; first it was changed to “freak off” after Rodgers mused that they wouldn’t be able to say ‘fuck off’ on the radio, but that sounded “terrible”, so he changed it to ‘freak out’.
“Le Freak” was the first song to score the number one position on the Billboard Hot 100 three separate times. MC Lyte sampled the song “Woo Woo (Freak Out)” featuring Brownstone’s Nicci Gilbert, which first appeared on the soundtrack to the 1998 movie Woo and also appeared on her album Seven & Seven, titled “Woo Woo (Party Time)” which released three months later. This record remained until 2008, when three different songs, “Bleeding Love” by Leona Lewis, “Whatever You Like” by T.I., and his follow-up single “Live Your Life”, featuring Rihanna all achieved this feat. Bruno Mars also managed this in 2011 with “Grenade”, as did The Weeknd with his 2015 single “Can’t Feel My Face”. On July 14, 2018, Drake surpassed all of these singles when his hit “Nice For What” reached the pole position four separate times. In 1987, an acid house-styled re-mix was issued under the title “Jack Le Freak”. It reached number 18 in the United Kingdom, becoming Chic’s last top 40 hit to date in that country.
