Before The Supremes came into existence, Wilson along with friends Florence Ballard, Diana Ross and Betty McGlown were recruited by record producer Milton Jenkins (in the late 1950s) to become The Primettes. By 1961, the female act was signed to Motown Records, changing the name to the Supremes. The 60s act earned its place in music history as America's most successful vocal act.

Although the group went through many change of line ups, Wilson remained the only consistent member. After leaving The Supremes in 1977, Wilson embarked on solo career, releasing a few disco albums.

In the mid eighties, Wilson published the highly successful book, Dreamgirl: My Life as a Supreme, revealing shocking revelations about the group. In recent years, Wilson is still involved with music: in 2007 she released a jazz album, Up Close: Live from San Francisco.
