The Fugees landed in hot water when they sampled Enya's 'Boadicea' on 'Ready Or Not' - without asking the Irish artist for permission. She threatened legal action, but settled out of court. 'Ready or Not' was most successful in the UK (where it spent two weeks at the top of the charts). A No. 2 in Ireland, it only reached 69 in the Fugee's native U.S.A. The group disbanded the following year but members Wyclef Jean and Lauryn Hill both went on to enjoy very successful solo careers.
