Basic JavaScript - Record Collection

Tell us what’s happening:
Hey - not sure why this isn’t passing? I can’t figure it out although I feel like I should be able to! My brain is fried.

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 !== "") {
    if (records[id].hasOwnPropery("tracks") === false) {
      records[id][prop]= [];      
  return records;

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

Challenge: Basic JavaScript - Record Collection

Link to the challenge:

could it be as simple as this line missing a semicolon? I see you have a stray semicolon also after one of your closing curly braces

But don’t delete it just move it in front of your curly brackets because otherwise you’ll be missing it.

Try running a failing test case. You should get a new error message.

You have a small typo in your code.

It was the semi-colon! Thank you to all who chimed in. I still found this one very tough and I am not confident that I can repeat it…keep on going I guess!

The semi-colon should be fine. The issue was misspelling “Property”.
