She's a super freak, super freak She's super-freaky, yow Everybody sing Super freak, super freak. She's a very special girl The kind of girl you want to know From her head down to her toenails Down to her feet, yeah And she'll wait for me at backstage with her girlfriends In a limousine Going back in Chinatown Three's not a crowd to her, she says (Menage a trois) "Room 714, I'll be. waiting" When I get there she's got incense, wine and candles It's such a freaky scene. Super Freak is a 1981 hit single produced and performed by Rick James. The song, co-written by James and Alonzo Miller, was first released on James' album Street Songs and became one of James' signature songs.

Super Freak" is a 1981 single produced and performed by Rick James. Freak" is a slang term for a very promiscuous girl, as described in the song's lyrics, "She's a very kinky girl, The kind you don't take home to mother". Rolling Stone magazine ranked the song in its list of the 500 Greatest Songs of All Time.
Super Freak" was released about five months after MTV went on the air, and Rick James made a slick video for the song hoping it would get some spins on the network. At the time, however, MTV refused to play videos by black artists, and they rejected this clip, continuing to feed America a steady stream of rock and EuroPop.

Rick James (born James Ambrose Johnson, Jr; February 1, 1948 - August 6, 2004) was an American funk and soul musician from Buffalo New York, who worked as a singer, keyboardist, bassist, record producer, arranger, and composer during his long career. One of the most popular artists on the Motown label during the late 1970s and early 1980s, James was famous for his wild brand of funk music and his trademark cornrow braids. Super Freak" in 1981, from the Street Songs album, was his biggest hit. During this period, he also helped launch the careers of R&B singer Teena Marie and the Mary Jane Girls as well as producing Eddie Murphy's hit, Party All the Time. After remaining moderately successful through the 80s, his popularity waned in the 90s and he succumbed to drugs, having frequent run-ins with the law, one of which resulted in a prison term.
