BURNING THE GROUND EXCLUSIVE 1979

Mary Wilson (born March 6, 1944) is an American singer, who gained fame as a founding member of the Motown female singing group The Supremes during the 1960s and 1970s. Wilson was the only singer to be a consistent member of the group in its eighteen-year tenure.

In 1979, Wilson became involved in a protracted legal battle with Motown over their management of the Supremes. After an out-of-court settlement, Motown signed Wilson to the label. In August 1979, Wilson’s debut solo album entiltled Mary Wilson was released with material produced by Hal Davis. The album took Wilson’s solo work further into a mixture of R&B and disco. The album’s lead single, “Red Hot”, peaked at #95 on the Billboard R&B singles chart. An extended version of “Red Hot” made available as a 12-inch single earned the song a #85 spot on the disco charts in October 1979.
