On April 4, 2024, Tuff City Records sued Universal Music Group over an alleged infringement that dates back to 1992, when Mary J. Blige, just twenty-one years old, released her first top-ten hit, “Real Love.”

The complaint, filed in New York, claims “Real Love” infringes on a well-sampled record from 1973, the Honey Drippers (not the one with Robert Plant) “Impeach The President.”
