Beluga Heights Records is a Los Angeles–based record label founded by producer J. R. Rotem. The label is known for working with popular musical artists such as Rihanna and Leona Lewis as well as discovering and developing new acts such as Sean Kingston, Jason Derülo and Iyaz.
The Beluga Heights label was founded in November 2006 as an equal three-way partnership between Rotem, his manager Zach Katz and his brother Tommy Rotem with Epic Records to help develop new artists signed to the label. In August 2008, Beluga Heights moved to a new joint venture with Warner Bros. Records, where Jason Derülo, Auburn, and Iyaz were signed to the record label. The "Beluga Heights" phrase is commonly found at the start of songs produced by the record label. Beluga Heights is also housed in the Chalice Recording Studios in Los Angeles.
