Johnny Kemp Passed Away!

Johnny Kemp was a part of the New Jack Swing era.

Remember it's Friday night, and you just got paid. Well the hit single came from R&B singer Johnny Kemp. Tonight the Associated Press announced he had passed away in Jamaica.

He was big in the 1990s but that was the only hit that managed to top the charts. 

He was born in the Bahamas. He began his singing career at 13. He performed at nightclubs and when he decided to venture to the United States he settled in New York.

He released the album Secrets of Flying which contained "Just Got Paid" and "Dancin' With Myself".

He was a scheduled performer for the Tom Joyner Soul Cruise. He was found in Montego Bay in a watery pit.

He leaves behind a wife and two sons. 

Kemp is a veteran of the new jack swing era. The New Jack Swing is a mixture of hip-hop fused with R&B. The genre produced a smack dab of hits. Kemp was a part of the music.

We here at Journal de la Reyna send our condolences to the family of Johnny Kemp.
