Sony BMG Music Entertainment (Thailand) In 2001 BEC-TERO entered into a partnership with Sony BMG Music Entertainment to create a Thai division of the record label. The partnership was terminated in mid-2007. Among the artists on Sony BMG's roster were Tata Young, one of Thailand's most popular female artists. The company also had the Bakery Music and Black Sheep Record labels, which are focused on the indie music scene.
