The Story of the Supremes
6. 6. International Stars
By the end of 1965 the Supremes had achieved international success, with number one records in several different countries, featuring on motion picture soundtracks and even their own brand of bread. Ross' voice was perfect for pop, and their look was classy, designed to appeal to both black and white audiences. They achieved a string of number one hits in the US, and their 1966 album The Supremes A' Go-Go knocked the Beatles' Revolver off the top spot.
