These are the Billboard Hot 100 number-one singles of 1971.

George Harrison became the first post-Beatles solo act to hit #1 with "My Sweet Lord" / "Isn't It a Pity" in 1970 and 1971.

That year, 16 acts hit number one for the first time, such as Dawn, the Osmonds, Janis Joplin, Honey Cone, Carole King, the Raiders, James Taylor, the Bee Gees, Linda McCartney, Donny Osmond, Rod Stewart, Isaac Hayes, and Melanie. Janis Joplin became the second artist to earn a number one song posthumously after her death in October 1970. Paul McCartney, Cher, and Donny Osmond, having already hit number one with the Beatles, Sonny & Cher, and the Osmonds, respectively, also earn their first number one songs as solo acts.
