4. 4. "No Hits Supremes"
Diane Ross was firmly against 'the Supremes' as too masculine-sounding, but was overruled by Ballard. When Martin left in 1962 to begin a family, the group continued as a trio. Between 1961 and 1963 they released six singles, all of which charted outside the Top 40, earning them the nickname 'No Hits Supremes'.
