Diana Ross, Florence Ballard, and Mary Wilson’s career was going nowhere. They had released eight singles with little success. All that was about to change courtesy of Gladys Horton of The Marvelettes.
The Marvelettes had turned down the Holland-Dozier-Holland song “Where Did Our Love Go” and it ended up being offered to the Supremes. They recorded the song April 8, 1964, and just over four weeks later, beginning on August 22, it was the number one song in the United States for two weeks.
A career was resurrected but the best was yet to come.
