The Story Behind Weezer's "Africa"

posted by Lisa Foxx - 

Weezer covered the Toto rock hit "Africa."

This ended up being one of the band's biggest hits! It's now their highest charting song since 2009.

Here's some backstory.

In December, one kid thought it would be funny to suggest on Twitter that the band cover the hit. 

Mary, set up a Twitter account devoted to her favorite band Weezer, to cover "Africa."

Drummer Patrick Wilson responded to her and then things started moving forward.

Who would of thought?! 

Now all we can hope for is a Weezer/Toto collaboration!
