Bahamian R&B singer Johnny Kemp, who is best known for the hit song Just Got Paid, has died in Jamaica. He was 55.

Kemp was nominated in 1989 for a Grammy Award 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 and was covered by NSYNC on their 2000 album No Strings Attached.

Kemp appeared on a 2007 Keith Sweat DVD called Sweat Hotel Live and had been performing at musical events across the U.S. in recent years.

Kemp kicked off his career as a teenager singing in nightclubs in the Bahamas, before moving to New York in 1979.

He is survived by his wife, Deirdre Fisher-Kemp and their two sons.
