Or one or some of the pulley bearings are shot putting a drag on the serpentine belt. Remove the serpentine belt by turning the belt tensioner and spin all your pulleys to see which one is making the noise or the one that spins freely for many revolutions and or is stuck, They should have some resistance. Check the belt condition while your at it and replace if over 60K.
