Diana Ross sang lead on all of The Supreme's early singles, save for 1961's "Buttered Popcorn", led by Ballard. These singles were not successes, and Diana Ross worked for a time as Motown CEO Berry Gordy, Jr.'s secretary for additional income. Feeling that her distinctive soprano voice would allow The Supremes to crossover for mainstream audiences, Gordy made her the "official" lead singer of the group in late 1963. The same year, The Supremes had their first hit with "When the Lovelight Starts Shining Through His Eyes". More pop hits soon followed, with an unprecedented ten Supremes singles, among them "Where Did Our Love Go", "Stop! In the Name of Love", and "You Keep Me Hangin' On", becoming number one Billboard Hot 100 hits between 1964 and 1967. By 1967 The Supremes were the most successful act on the Motown label, and Diana Ross established as the focal point of the group.
By the summer of 1969, Jean Terrell was chosen by Gordy to be Diana Ross' replacement and she began her first solo recordings. In May 1970, her first solo album, entitled Diana Ross, was released on Motown. The first single, the gospel-influenced "Reach Out and Touch (Somebody's Hand)", peaked at #20 on the Billboard Hot 100. The album's second single, a cover of Marvin Gaye and Tammi Terrell's 1967 hit "Ain't No Mountain High Enough", was an international hit, and gave Diana Ross her first #1 pop single as a solo artist. In 1971, Motown released her second album Everything is Everything, which garnered Diana Ross' first UK number one solo single, "I'm Still Waiting". Several months later, she released Surrender, which garnered the top 20 pop hit, "Remember Me".
Diana Ross scored a Top 10 hit in late 1980 with the theme song to the 1980 film It's My Turn. The following year, she collaborated with former Commodores singer-songwriter Lionel Richie on the theme song for the film Endless Love. The "Endless Love" single became Diana Ross' final hit on Motown Records, and the Number One Record of the year. Feeling that Motown, and in particular Gordy, were keeping her from freely expressing herself, and not according her financial parity, Diana Ross left Motown for $20 million contract to sign with RCA Records, ending her twenty-year tenure with the label. When "Endless Love" hit number-one in 1981, Diana Ross became the first female artist in music history to place six singles at number one on the Billboard Hot 100, surpassing Barbra Streisand's five number-ones and Donna Summer's four number-ones. It was and has remained the most successful duet in pop history.
