Supremes

** This is just a short biographical summary – for the full story, check out this artist’s reviews! **

The quintessential Motown group, the Supremes were Motown’s biggest-selling group of the 1960s, scoring 12 US Number One hits and topping charts worldwide. The group arrived at Motown in 1961 as the Primettes, under the wing of their friends the Primes (soon to become one half of the Temptations), but once they got to Hitsville they endured three difficult years without commercial success (during which time they were derided as “the no-hit Supremes”, the runts of the Motown litter). Partnered with the Holland-Dozier-Holland songwriting team in late 1963, they quickly went from strength to strength, registering an astonishing five Number One singles in a row between 1964-5. After HDH left Motown at the end of 1967, the Supremes struggled for direction (though they still managed to rack up two more chart-topping singles and plenty more mid-sized hits), and lead singer Diana Ross went solo in 1970; however, the group continued successfully for several more years with new lead singers Jean Terrell and Scherrie Payne before finally disbanding in 1977.
