Smokey Robinson

Smokey Robinson was a big force in the early success of Motown, landing the label its first million seller with "Shop Around" as front man of the Miracles, who had 25 top 40 hits in the '60s. Robinson was also one of the label's main songwriters and early executives before embarking on his solo career, where he found success with classics like "Cruisin'" and "Quiet Storm."
