Klymaxx was conceived and formed by Bernadette Cooper, who also chose the name. The dream of an all girl band became a quest she pursued after leaving college. Through many auditions and temporary members the group that became successful consisted of drummer/vocalist Bernadette Cooper, vocalist Lorena Porter (Stewart), bassist/vocalist Joyce Irby, guitarist Cheryl Cooley and keyboardists Lynn Malsby and Robbin Grider.
In 1981, they were signed to Solar Records. Their debut album, Never Underestimate The Power Of A Woman. Upon beginning work on their second album, they became one of the first acts to work with writers/producers Jimmy Jam and Terry Lewis of The Time. The team wrote and produced the song “Wild Girls” for that second album, entitled Girls Will Be Girls. After the second Solar album in 1983, they switched to the MCA-distributed Constellation label for Meeting in the Ladies Room, featuring the 1985 hit “I Miss You,” which peaked at #5 on the Billboard Hot 100 chart and at #1 on the Billboard adult contemporary chart. “I Miss You” remained on the Hot 100 chart for 29 weeks, an extremely long chart run at the time, and good enough to rank it as the third-biggest-selling song of 1986, ahead of several songs that hit the top 10. The album also featured the hits “The Men All Pause” and “Meeting in the Ladies Room.”
