The 25 Best New Jack Swing Songs

15. Johnny Kemp "Just Got Paid" (1988)

Album: Secrets of Flying
Label: CBS
Producer: Teddy Riley


We've been there before. After a grueling week of work, Friday rolls around and we finally get paid. Then, since Friday comes but once a week, we decide to celebrate by sporting blazers and rolling 20 deep to the party strip to partake in tightly choreographed dance battles before trying to go home with the trophy chick. OK, maybe it's not our exact fantasy, but that was Johnny Kemp's ideal payday in the music video to just "Just Got Paid." The song has proved a fitting soundtrack to everybody's favorite weekly holiday.
