“Everybody’s Got the Right to Love” is a socially conscious–inspired pop song written by Lou Stallman, produced by Frank Wilson and released as a single in 1970 by Motown group The Supremes, who took the song into the top forty in mid-1970 following the release of “Up the Ladder to the Roof”.

The song became a top 30 hit for the Supremes peaking at number 21 on the Billboard Hot 100 and reaching number 11 on the R&B chart.[1] “Everybody’s Got the Right to Love’ was the second of eight top forty singles the Supremes scored after the departure of Diana Ross. It did not make the top 50 in the UK Singles Chart, interrupting an otherwise successful run of top ten hits for the group in Britain.
