Also in 1960, The Shirelles’ “Tonight’s the Night” broke on to the Billboard Top 40 chart. A few months later, in January of 1961, The Shirelles would spend two weeks at the top of the Billboard Hot 100 chart with their hit “Will You Love Me Tomorrow.” It was the first time an African American all-female group would hit the number one spot.
