Le Freak, a cover version of the track by Chic, was performed as part of a streamed live medley with Sexy Dancer during 3rdEye TV Show # 4 in 2013. The track appeared on the band's 1978 album C'est Chic, and was released as a single shortly before the album. The track was written by Bernard Edwards and Nile Rodgers.

The version streamed was a live performance recorded during the final night of Prince's 21 Nights In London : The Earth Tour , with lead vocals by Shelby J. No studio version by Prince of Le Freak is believed to exist, though Sexy Dancer and Le Freak have been performed in a medley consistently between 2007 and 2012.
