This was fun to watch. Truth be told I don't ever recall "Freakin' It" playing on the radio, and only recall seeing the music video played two or three times.  I kind of wish the waited to release The Will Smith Video collection so that it included this video.  "Freakin' It" was intended to be the first single off of the album.  I remember seeing traces of it being prepared before Willennium was fully announced. Timing the Y2K craze resulted in "Will 2K" being the first single.  "Freakin' It" was easily a Columbia choice.  They wanted a pop hit in the form of "Jiggy", but they messed it up since nearly every song on the album is better than it.  Willennium was a great time.  A Touch of Jazz was all over the album and Will spent more time in Philly for it's creating and promotion.
