Nick & Jive Records Sign Singing Pact
Nickelodeon and Jive Records have inked a deal to distribute records under the new Nick Records label. Under the multiyear deal, Jive and Nick Records will team for marketing, promotion and distribution of joint venture releases worldwide. The first album due out under the pact is the soundtrack to the Paramount/Nickelodeon Movies feature JIMMY NEUTRON: BOY GENIUS, scheduled to hit theaters on November 6. Jive's 13-year-old pop sensation Aaron Carter will provide several tracks for the project. "The combination of music and television appearances will be par for the course under the new deal, with Nick and Jive capitalizing on the similarity of their [audiences]," said Albie Hecht, president of film and TV entertainment for Nickelodeon, TV Land and TNN.
