Motown is an American record company. The record company was founded by Berry Gordy, Jr. as Tamla Records on January 12, 1958,[1][2] and was incorporated as Motown Record Corporation on April 14, 1960, in DetroitMichigan.[3]The name, a portmanteau of motor and town, has also become a nickname for Detroit. Motown played an important role in the racial integration of popular music as an African American-owned record label that achieved significant crossover success. In the 1960s, Motown and its subsidiary labels (including Tamla Motown, the brand used outside the US) were the most successful proponents of what came to be known as the Motown Sound, a style of soul music with a distinct pop influence.
