1970 – The Jackson Five’s Third Album yielded their 4th #1 single I’ll Be There.

In September 1970, the Jackson 5 had sold over 10 million copies of their 3 singles I Want You Back, ABC and The Love You Save, during a period of 9 months. It was a record for a so short period, and with I’ll Be There, they are the first artists to have produced 4 singles reaching the top of the Billboard!

It was quite a change of pace from the singles that had been previously released. I’ll Be There is a touching balled with Michael and Jermaine trading lead vocals. I’ll Be There gave the Jackson Five their longest stay at #1, entering the #1 position the week of October 17, 1970 and remaining at the top of the chart for 5 weeks, replacing Neil Diamond’s Cracklin’ Rose. It also become their 4th #1 hit on the black singles chart. The Jackson Five became the 1st group ever to have their 1st four singles become #1 hits. I’ll Be There became Motown’s 3rd biggest single of all time behind Marvin Gaye’s Heard It Through the Grapevine and Lionel Richie and Diana Ross’ duet, Endless Love.
