Wiki

"Le Freak" is a 1978 hit disco song by Chic. It was the band's third single and first Billboard Hot 100 and soul number-one song.[1][2] A New York Times critic describes the song as a "haunting, minimalist pop-funk built around the guitar and bass". Along with the tracks, "I Want Your Love" and "Chic Cheer", "Le Freak" stayed at number one on the disco charts for seven weeks.[3] The single bears the distinction of being the highest selling record ever on Atlantic Records, and the highest-selling single ever on WEA until it was displaced in 1990 (by Madonna's "Vogue").

The single achieved sales of over four million and also reached number seven in the UK singles chart.

The song was ranked at number 19 on Billboard Magazine's top 100 songs of the first 50 years of the Hot 100 chart.
