Your Heart Belongs to Me is the third single released from The Supremes' debut album "Meet The Supremes."

The single was released on May 8, 1962. It was written & produced by Smokey Robinson (of the Miracles).

Song Background[edit | edit source]

After the failure of The Supremes' first single "I Want A Guy" with Diana Ross in the lead, their follow-up single "Buttered Popcorn" also failed to chart.

For this track, Smokey Robinson decided to use Diana as the lead vocalist for the song.

This single became the last single The Supremes made a quartet because after this, Barbara Martin left the group start a family which left Diana, Florence Ballard & Mary Wilson as a trio.

Barbara is not featured on the single cover due to her departure & because at the time of the photo shoot, she was noticeably pregnant.

Song Composition[edit | edit source]

The song is about a woman whose lover is in the armed forces and has "gone to a far-away land."

Its narration has her tell him to always remember their love for each other if he ever gets lonely.

Chart Performance[edit | edit source]

"Your Heart Belongs To Me" was moderately successful on the Billboard Hot 100, but failed to make Billboard's R&B chart.
