Basic JavaScript - Record Collection - Issue running one test

Tell us what’s happening:

All my tests are running, but for some reason I’m getting this message: " After updateRecords(recordCollection, 5439, “tracks”, “Take a Chance on Me”) – “tracks” should have the string “Take a Chance on Me” as the last and only element."

Your code so far

// Setup
const recordCollection = {
  2548: {
    albumTitle: 'Slippery When Wet',
    artist: 'Bon Jovi',
    tracks: ['Let It Rock', 'You Give Love a Bad Name']
  },
  2468: {
    albumTitle: '1999',
    artist: 'Prince',
    tracks: ['1999', 'Little Red Corvette']
  },
  1245: {
    artist: 'Robert Palmer',
    tracks: []
  },
  5439: {
    albumTitle: 'ABBA Gold'
  }
};

// Only change code below this line
function updateRecords(records, id, prop, value) {
  if (value === ""){
   delete records[id][prop];
  } else if (prop !== "tracks" && value !== "") {
    records[id][prop] = value;
  } else if (records[id].hasOwnProperty("tracks") === false) {
    records[id][prop] = [];
  } else if (prop === "tracks" && value !== ""){
    records[id][prop].push(value);
  }
  return records;
}

updateRecords(recordCollection, 5439, 'artist', 'ABBA');

This case isn’t quite correct

try using console.log() to see what is being applied

for example:
console.log(updateRecords(recordCollection, 5439, “tracks”, “Take a Chance on Me”))

this is the output.
'5439': { albumTitle: 'ABBA Gold', artist: 'ABBA', tracks: [] } }

“take a chance on Me” is not getting pushed

Yes, I realized I needed to nest that if statement inside that last if else statement i had and that worked.

} else if (prop === “tracks” && value !== “”){
if (records[id].hasOwnProperty(“tracks”) === false) {
records[id][prop] = ;
}
records[id][prop].push(value);
}
