MOTOWN’S FIRST MILLION SELLER REMEMBERED

Feb 12, 2022

On the 12th February, 1961 The Miracles’ Shop Around became Motown Records’ first million-selling single. It was also the label’s first No.1 hit on Billboard’s R&B singles chart. In the following ten years, The Miracles, led by the label’s most prolific writer, Smokey Robinson, would have six more million sellers.

The song was released in 1960 and, in 2006, was inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame as one of the 500 Songs That Shaped Rock and Roll.

We have a dedicated station for the artist who achieved that very first million seller.
