Description:
The Island Def Jam Music Group is a record label group formed in 1999 when Universal Music Group merged two of its daughter companies, Island Records and Def Jam Recordings, to create a label group.

Also incorporated into the venture was the staff, roster, and back catalog of Mercury Records, which was dismantled for several years until it was revived as a new venture in 2007. Meanwhile, the imprints Island Records and Def Jam Recordings continue to operate as their own respective labels underneath the Island Def Jam umbrella (Island has concentrated on pop and rock performers, while Def Jam has most of the group's rap and R&B acts). The company is also co-affiliated with Lost Highway.

Island Def Jam is one of three UMG units in North America to market the works of primarily mainstream pop, rock, and urban performers - the others are Interscope-Geffen-A&M and the Universal Motown Republic Group. Barry Weiss serves as Chairman & CEO of the company.
