    The Fugee’s debut release in the UK reaching number 21 in April 1996. Following their successes afterwards, including two Number Ones and a Top 10 hit at Christmas with No Woman No Cry the next Fugees single was scheduled to be a re-release of Fu-Ge-La in early 1997.

    The release date was duly set and promotional copies were sent out to radio stations, many of whom playlisted it. Around the same time the soundtrack of the new Muhammed Ali biopic was released in America with the Fugees' contribution Rumble In The Jungle released as a single. Several canny importers immediately flooded this country with copies of the track and despite the inflated price of such singles, they immediately began to sell. Clearly this could be detrimental both to potential sales of Fu-Ge-La (after all what do you do if there are two singles by the same artist on different record labels available) and also to sales of Rumble In The Jungle when it came to be released properly. As a result, the release of Fu-Ge-La was shelved.
