Nickelodeon Records (formerly only 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.[1] In September 2004, Nick Records announced a new partner, Bertelsmann Music Group (later sold to Sony Music).[2][3]

Music by Nickelodeon Inc.[edit]

Music by Nickelodeon Inc. is a separate division of ViacomCBS that administers Nickelodeon's music catalog, including the songs used for Nick Records releases. It manages all of the music produced by Nickelodeon for its original shows. The division is affiliated with BMI and was founded in Delaware.[4] Nickelodeon has also established two other publishers for its music: Tunes by Nickelodeon Inc. (affiliated with ASCAP) and Nickelodeon Notes Inc. (affiliated with SESAC).
