Nickelodeon Records (formerly known as Nick Records from 2001 to 2010) is the record label for the children's television channel Nickelodeon, which is owned by ViacomCBS. The label featured new and emerging young musical artists, "triple threat" singers who would also act and dance on the network's series (singer Ariana Grande being one of them), and soundtrack compilations based on Nickelodeon TV shows.
Nickelodeon released its first soundtrack album in 1993. The "Nick Records" name was first used in 2001, when Nickelodeon announced a partnership with Jive Records to form a new record label. In September 2004, Nick Records announced a new partner, Bertelsmann Music Group (later sold to Sony Music).
