JavaScript JavaScript Basics (Retired) Storing and Tracking Information with Variables Create a variable with a string

I can't figure this out at all.

I think I am putting it in right, then it says it is wrong and I can't figure what what is missing and what I need to put in.

var message = "Hello!";
message = "Goodbye";
message = 'Jasmine';
  <meta http-equiv="Content-Type" content="text/html; charset=UTF-8">
  <title>JavaScript Basics</title>
<script src="app.js"></script>

The challenge says "Create a player variable with the string 'Jasmine' in it." It looks like you are changing the message variable to the string 'Jasmine' instead of creating a new variable. The below should work.

var player = 'Jasmine';
