ViK. Recordings was a Canadian record label that was wholly owned subsidiary of Sony BMG. It began shortly after 1998, when Lisa Zbitnew became president of its owner of BMG in Canada. Its notable artists included: Tom Green, Treble Charger, Jacksoul, Shawn Desman, Rascalz and Keshia Chante. Most of its roster were absorbed into Sony BMG Music Canada, following the merger of Sony and BMG in 2004 and the appointment of Lisa Zbitnew to President and CEO of Sony BMG Music Canada the same year. The Vik name is a revival of an RCA Victor Records subsidiary label established in 1955 which replaced the "X" label.[2]
