Basic JavaScript - Record Collection

Tell us what’s happening:
My code keeps failing the " 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.
" condition and I am not sure why
Any help would be appreciated.

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 !== ""){
    if(records[id].hasOwnProperty("tracks")===false){
    records[id][prop] = ["value"];
    } else

    records[id][prop].push(value);
    
  }
  
   else if (prop !== "tracks" && value !== ""){
    records[id][prop] = value;
  } 
  
  

  return records;
}

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

Hi, I can’t tell you the error directly, but I can give you a hint: when you want to take the value of a variable, it should not be in quotation marks, since doing so turns them into a text string. If you have more questions, ask them

var pet = "dog"

console.log(pet) //result => dog
console.log("pet") //result => pet

records[id][prop] = [“value”]; :wink:
