Arista Records and Jive Records are both to fall under the banner of RCA Records and no longer exist.

The legendary record labels have nurtured some of the biggest talents in music, with Arista being founded by music mogul Clive Davis and being home to acts such as Babyface, Usher and TLC. It’s partnerships with labels such as LaFace, Bad Boy and Star Trak also saw a whole new generation of artists including Notorious B.I.G, Toni Braxton, OutKast and Kelis to name a few.
