Johnny Kemp (born 1959, Nassau, Bahamas) is a Bahamian R&B singer and dancer. He began singing in nightclubs in the Bahamas at 13. He moved to New York in 1979 with the band "Kinky Fox." His self-titled debut album came out in 1986 and he scored a minor hit with "Just Another Lover." True success came the following year, however, with the release of his Secrets of Flying album, which contained a pair of Top 5 hits on the US Billboard R&B chart: "Dancin' with Myself" and "Just Got Paid," the latter hitting #1. "Just Got Paid" also cracked the Top 10 on the Billboard Hot 100 in 1988, and went to top the Hot Dance Music/Club Play. It provided his only UK Singles Chart entry, peaking at #68 for one week in August 1988. His only other Hot 100 entry was "Birthday Suit," a tune from the soundtrack to the movie, Sing which climbed to #36 in 1989.
