// tests completed

Your code so far


// Setup
var collection = {
    "2548": {
      "album": "Slippery When Wet",
      "artist": "Bon Jovi",
      "tracks": [ 
        "Let It Rock", 
        "You Give Love a Bad Name" 
      ]
    },
    "2468": {
      "album": "1999",
      "artist": "Prince",
"tracks": [ 
        "1999", 
        "Little Red Corvette" 
      ]
    },
    "1245": {
      "artist": "Robert Palmer",
      "tracks": [ ]
    },
    "5439": {
      "album": "ABBA Gold"
    }
};
// Keep a copy of the collection for tests
var collectionCopy = JSON.parse(JSON.stringify(collection));

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

// Alter values below to test your code
console.log(updateRecords(2548, "artist", ""));

check at how you nsted the if/else statements, the else with the delete command is nested insde the if with condition prop === "tracks"

can I suggest as first branching if (value !== "") {...} else {delete ___} ?
