Throughout the 1970s, the Supremes continued to thrill their fans with concerts, television appearances, and great music. A successive string of pop and r&b hits included "Up The Ladder To The Roof," "Everybody's Got The Right To Love," "Stoned Love," "River Deep-Mountain High" (with the Four Tops), "Nathan Jones" (later covered in the 1980s by Bananarama and featured in the movie Rain Man), "Floy Joy," "Automatically Sunshine" and the East coast regional hit, "Bad Weather" written by Stevie Wonder and Ira Tucker, Lynda Laurence's brother. It was later covered by Melissa Manchester. Their final pop top 40 hit came in 1976 with the Scherrie Payne-led single "I'm Gonna Let My Heart Do The Walking," a song later adopted as the campaign theme of the American Heart Association.

Since the dissolution of the group in 1977, Wilson has gone on to become a best-selling author and stage actress while maintaining a solo singing and recording career. Jean Terrell also ventured out as a soloist but has since retired, performing only occasionally while raising her family. Cindy retired from the business as well, however, Scherrie Payne, Lynda Laurence, and Susaye Greene still record and perform.
