Universal Motown Records formerly universal records is a USA record label, owned by Universal Music Group located in New York, Manhattan.

Founded in 1995 as Rising Tide Records, the following year its name was changed to Universal Records and began to thrive.

It was created by current Universal Music Group Chairman, Doug Morris, and Daniel Glass, who became its President.

The label had success in breaking artists, including the multi-platinum debut of Erykah Badu, Billie Myers, Goldfinger, and the Lost Boyz. Recognizing the changing landscape of the industry, Glass strategically aligned Universal with such independent record labels as Kedar Entertainment, home to Erykah Badu, and Mojo Records, home to platinum artist Reel Big Fish and the Cherry Poppin’ Daddies.

As the 1990s ended and the 2000s began, the label had notable success with acts like 98 Degrees, Jack Johnson, Juvenile, and Nelly. Overseas, it has notable success with the band Grinspoon.

Subsequently Universal Records merged with Motown Records to form The Universal Motown Records Group, under which it operates today.
