“I Want You Back” is a 1969 number-one single recorded by The Jackson 5 for the Motown label. The song, backed with a cover of Smokey Robinson & the Miracles’ “Who’s Lovin’ You,” was the only single from the first Jackson 5 album, Diana Ross Presents the Jackson 5. It held the number-one position on the Billboard Hot 100 singles chart for the week of January 31, 1970. It sold 6 million copies worldwide.

“I Want You Back” ranks number 120 on Rolling Stone’s list of the 500 Greatest Songs of All Time. In 2006, Pitchfork Media named it the second best song of the 1960s, adding that the chorus contains “possibly the best chord progression in pop music history.”

In 1999, “I Want You Back” was also inducted in Grammy Hall of Fame.
