‘Just Got Paid,’ R&B Singer Johnny Kemp Dies At Age 55

Johnny Kemp, the voice behind the dance-worthy melody “Just Got Paid,” died Thursday (Apr. 16), at the age of 55. The Associated Press states that the Bahamian singer was found near a beach in Montego Bay, Jamaica, but the exact cause of his death are still unclear with details still forthcoming.

Kemp’s Grammy-nominated hit “Just Got Paid,” not only lived on the radio when it premiered in the late 80’s, but it was heard on motion picture soundtracks such as Love & Basketball. It also hit number one on the U.S. R&B singles and dance charts during its debut, as well as the number 10 spot on the Billboard Hot 100.
