Bug? The code challenge is asking my to create an empty JavaScript array which should be var myArray = [];

The first step is to create an empty JavaScript array. There's no instruction as far as what to call it. I'm entering var songs = []; and it's returning an error.

var songs = [];

You're creating an array called "songs". Try changing that to myArray.

Hi there! No, it's not a bug. Take a look at the file name. It's "songs.json". This is not a JavaScript file, this is a JSON file. There is no variable declaration nor semicolon needed. The only thing needed here is an empty set of square brackets.

Hope this helps! :sparkles:
