Police said Friday that Kemp was found floating at a beach in Montego Bay on Thursday morning. Police said Kemp arrived in Jamaica on a cruise ship. Reach Media Inc. said Kemp had been scheduled to be on a Caribbean cruise this week. 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.
Rest in peace Johnny.
