The Jackson Five kicks The Beatles out of the US Hot 100 No.1 with “ABC” on this day in 1970

Released on February 24, 1970, “ABC” remains one of the Jackson Five most memorable and signature songs. Featuring a similar structure and feel as the Jacksons’ first hit of 1970, “I Want You Back”, the song was written by The Corporation (Berry Gordy, Freddie Perren, Alphonzo Mizell and Deke Richards), “ABC” knocked The Beatles’ “Let It Be” off the top of the Billboard Hot 100 on April 25, 1970, when it rose to No.1 and was number one on the soul singles chart for four weeks. The then 11-year-old Michael Jackson, sung the lead vocals for the song. Aside from “ABC”, the Jackson Five scored other several hits during the late 1960’s and 1970’s such as “I Want You Back”, “I’ll Be There” and “Never Can Say Goodbye”.
