Stacy & Komiko were the singing duo of Stacy Irvin and Komiko Whittaker. Before teaming up, the duo was part of the trio Sugar Babes with Patrice Lydia. The group recorded for MCA Records and mid-charted R&B with "We Rock the Beat" in the spring of 1987. Irvin and Whittaker formed the duo Stacy & Komiko in 1990. Their self-titled MCA LP, Stacy & Komiko yielded the chugging, synth-funky "Wait For Me," which was written and produced by Bryan Loren and went to number 36 R&B in Billboard in spring 1990. Chuckii Booker produced the propulsive "R U Available" and "Come And Get It." Vincent Brantley (New Edition's "Cool It Now") wrote the loping, drifting "Single Girl," which was produced by Vahn Goh. The lovely "Lover's Paradise," co-written by Karyn White and Steve Harvey and produced by D'LaVance shows the duo's softer side. David Allen Jones (Eddie Murphy's How Could It Be) co-produces with Vahn Goh the mid-tempo ballad "Every Word." Vahn Goh's skills shine more with the sweet beat ballad "I've Been Waiting" and the slightly assaulting "It Just Ain't Right," written by Stacy & Komiko and Vincent Brantley.
