The Supremes were a Motown singing group during the 60s/70s. Diana Ross was a founding member of the group.
During the mid-1960s, the Supremes achieved mainstream success with Ross as lead singer. In 1967, Motown president Berry Gordy renamed the group Diana Ross & the Supremes, and replaced Ballard with Cindy Birdsong. Ross left to pursue a solo career in 1970 and was replaced by Jean Terrell, at which point the group’s name reverted to the Supremes.
Currently, Musicbrainz has separate artists for The Supremes and Diana Ross & The Supremes. I’m proposing that they be merged.
For comparison, another Motown group with a similar history is The Miracles, who were for a period known as Smokey Robinson & The Miracles. These two have been repeatedly merged together.
Does anybody have any objections to this?
