'Just Got Paid' Singer Found Dead In Jamaica

Bahamian R&B singer Johnny Kemp has died in Jamaica.

Police say the 55-year-old was found floating at a beach in Montego Bay on Thursday morning.

It hasn't yet been determined how he died.

Kemp was nominated for a Grammy in 1989 for "Just Got Paid" in a category that included Bobby Brown and Luther Vandross.

The song was a No. 1 hit on the U.S. Billboard R&B chart.

Kemp appeared on a 2007 Keith Sweat DVD called "Sweat Hotel Live."

He also had been performing at musical events across the U.S. in recent years.
