The Shirelles were an American girl group in the early 1960s, and the first to have a No. 1 single on the Billboard Hot 100. Formed in New Jersey in 1958, the quartet went on to release a string of hits. The Shirelles were the first major female vocal group of the rock and roll era, preceding Motown as a crossover phenomenon with white audiences. Unlike The Chantels, who had had their first hit in 1957, they were successful in Britain, first and foremost with "Will You Love Me Tomorrow" (1960).
