Beavers soon departed for Chess Recordsalthough both Bristol and Fuqua stayed on as songwriters and producers for the label. Bristol had already recorded the instrumental track and the background vocals when Berry Gordy happened upon the tracks and heard them.
Gordy thought that "Someday" would be a perfect first solo single for Diana Ross, who was making her long-expected exit from the Supremes at the time, and had Bristol sequester Ross into the studio to record the song.
