"Want Ads" was released as the first single from Soulful Tapestry in the United States in the spring of 1971 (see1971 in music). It reached the top of the Billboard Hot 100 for one week and topped the R&B singles chart for three weeks in the United States, becoming the group's most successful single and their only number one placement on the pop charts.
