Southern US based label founded by production duo Antonio L.A. Reid and Kenneth "Babyface" Edmonds.
An Arista Records imprint, LaFace scored hits throughout the 90s with a diverse stable of artists including Usher, Toni Braxton, P!nk, OutKast and TLC.
By the end of the decade Babyface was less involved with the label while still pursuing his own musical career. "LA" Reid took over from Clive Davis as head of Arista, and most of the LaFace artists went with him (though some went to Davis' new J Records). This seemingly marked the end of LaFace, but it seems LaFace is reborn as one quarter of the newly rearranged Zomba Label Group alongside So So Def, Verity and Jive.
LaFace Records' most prominent release to date was the 1994 TLC album "CrazySexyCool" which was the highest selling album by any all-female group.
In September 2011, Sony Music absorbed LaFace, Arista, Jive and J Records with RCA, bringing all of its artists to the RCA Records family.
