Leon Haywood (born February 11, 1942, Houston, Texas) is an American funk and soul singer, best known for his song "I Wanta Do Something Freaky To You". The song was sampled on two of Dr. Dre's singles, "Nuthin' But a "G" Thang" and "The Wash," although his name was improperly cited on The Chronic album as "L. Hayward." The song was also sampled on the song "Shuda Beena B-Dog" on Bangin' on Wax & "G's & Loc's" on Bangin' on Wax 2... The Saga Continues, Redman track "Rockafella", on Redman's Dare Iz a Darkside album, and on the track "Mobster's Anthem", from Twista's Adrenaline Rush. Mariah Carey also sampled that song for her 2002 album Charmbracelet for the song "You Had Your Chance", putting Mr. Haywood as one collaborator. Basement Jaxx also used the bass line from "Don't Push It, Don't Force It" in 1999 for the song "Red Alert" for the "Remedy" album.
