The Supremes were the premier act of Motown Records during the 1960's and have sold over 100 million records to date. Their catalog remains active 50 years later.

Originally founded as The Primettes in Detroit, Michigan, in 1959, The Supremes' repertoire included doo-wop, pop, soul, Broadway show tunes, psychedelic soul, and disco. They were the most commercially successful of Motown's acts and are, to date, America's most successful vocal group with 12 number one singles on the Billboard Hot 100. Most of these hits were written and produced by Motown's main songwriting and production team, Holland–Dozier–Holland. At their peak in the mid-1960's, The Supremes rivaled The Beatles in worldwide popularity and their success made it possible for future African-American R&B and soul musicians to find mainstream success.
