Yours might just be glazed, so try a new belt like Gates (Carquest) and tighten it correctly. It takes a lot of oomph to turn a compessor, and a glazed belt could simply not have enough grab, even if tightened further.

So that sounds like a bad clutch bearing....should spin freely....turn off engine, take off belt, spin by hand. Do this while engine is hot, and also do when engine cools off....should spin freely when AC not in use, and clutch coil should lock it up when AC compressor gets voltage.
