Basic JavaScript - Record Collection

Tell us what’s happening:
Describe your issue in detail here.
Hi everyone, hope you’re okay. I’m not clear as to where I went wrong with this challenge. I’ve gotten everything right except this condition " 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." Could someone kindly explain where I went wrong?
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 (prop === "tracks" && value !== ""){
    
    records[id][prop].push(value);
    
  }
  else if (records.hasOwnProperty("tracks") === false) {
      records[id][prop]= [];
      records[id].tracks.push(value);
  }
  return records;
}

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

Challenge: Basic JavaScript - Record Collection

Link to the challenge:

This assumes that the tracks property already exists.


  else if (records.hasOwnProperty("tracks") === false) {

“tracks” is within the “id” object, not the “records” object
