He had his first top 40 hit in 1958 with "To Be Loved." At the end of that year he had his first big success with "Lonely Teardrops" that went to #7 on the charts. The song, also written by Gordy, became his signature tune. That same year saw Wilson release his first LP titled He's So Fine.

Wilson's brand of soul and R&B helped him cross over to the mainstream, having several pop hits. His dynamic stage performances earned him the nickname "Mr. Excitement." His stage shows were legendary,and his explosive performance style, which included spins, flips, slides, and dramatic knee drops influenced generations of performers, including Elvis Presley and Michael Jackson, among numerous others. His incredible multi- octave vocal range drove audiences , particularly young females, into a frenzy, and caused Motown founder Berry Gordy, who wrote several of his early hits , to proclaim in his autobiography,"To Be Loved", that Wilson was "The greatest singer I ever heard. Unfortunately, for some, he set the standard in what I'd look for in singers forever". His performance of "Lonely Teardrops" on the Ed Sullivan Show is considered one of the show's classics. In the 1960s, Wilson continued to record singles, many of them operatic, such as "Danny Boy" or "Night," others were up-tempo and exciting, such as "Baby Workout" a self-written Top 10 hit in 1963.

His career began to suffer in the mid-60s, though he managed a brief revival by collaborating with Carl Davis[1], a legendary Chicago producer.
