    The Supremes were an American female singing group and the premier act of Motown Records during the 1960’s. 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.
