"Freek'n You" is a song by American R&B group Jodeci recorded for their third album The Show, the After Party, the Hotel. The song, released as the album's first single, peaked at number 14 on the Billboard Hot 100 in 1995. Listed by Billboard magazine as one of the best selling singles of 1995, it was certified gold by the RIAA for sales in excess of 600,000 units.
