Hollywood Records is an American record label of the Disney Music Group focusing on pop, rock, alternative and teen pop genres. Founded in 1989 by Michael Eisner, Hollywood Records was based with the idea of expanding the music operations of Disney Enterprises Inc and to develop and promote the careers of a wide variety of artists in various genres. However, the label struggled to launch a successful artist, and in 1991 the label had significant financial loss. The only major success was the agreement to be the catalog distributors of Queen, a fact affected by the death of vocalist Freddie Mercury. Label problems continued and even years after the acquisition of Mammoth Records in 1997 was seen as a sign of the search by Disney for a record label that would give success to the company. However, Mammoth Records was dissolved and integrated into the label in 2003, after little success.

In 1998, the company decided to integrate the operations of Walt Disney Records with Hollywood, Lyric Street, and Mammoth, with Walt Disney Music Publishing, creating Buena Vista Music Group, now Disney Music Group, and appointing Bob Cavallo as chairman of the group, and president of Hollywood Records. The newly formed group then set out to create a more traditional music industry management structure and involvement with Disney Enterprises Inc. was minimized. Cavallo retired in January 2012, and Ken Bunt was appointed to his position.

It was not until 2003, with the launch of Hilary Duff's musical career that the label would become a success. Her debut album sold more than 5 million copies worldwide and was the beginning of a successful business model for the label. A partnership with ABC, SOAP Net, A&E Networks, Disney Channel, and Radio Disney was encouraged and brought its artists to have strong media exposure. Artists such as the Cheetah Girls, Raven-Symoné, Demi Lovato, Bridgit Mendler, Selena Gomez, and the Jonas Brothers replicated this model of marketing. At the same time, the label continues to develop the careers of artists with a profile less commercial such as Grace Potter & the Nocturnals. The label also releases soundtracks from Marvel Studios, Touchstone, and Hollywood Pictures films and ABC television productions.

In 2010, Hollywood absorbed the country music label Lyric Street Records and subsequently inherited its roster of acts. In 2011, Queen's music was distributed by Universal worldwide for the first time, as outside the US, Queen left EMI for Universal-owned Island Records.

Its current roster includes notable major asrtists such as Queen,Grace Porter, Demi Lovato, Plain White T's, Redlight King, Breaking Benjamin, ZZ Ward, newcomers such as Lucy Hale, Valora, Cherri Bomb, Beatrice Miller, Stefano Langone, Coco Jones, McClain Sisters, and also Disney Channel stars such as Selena Gomez & The Scene, R5, Bridgit Mendler, Zendaya, and Bella Thorne.
