TOTO RETURNS: Weezer's "Africa" A Hot 100 Hit

posted by Jonny Hartwell -

Weezer made a fan’s dream come true when they covered Toto’s hit “Africa.” The Twitter user @weezerafrica had been campaigning for her favorite band to cover the song for quite some time and after a trolling fans with a cover of Toto’s other hit “Rosanna,” Weezer finally covered “Africa.” Looks like all the hype was worth it because the cover actually scored Weezer number 89 in the Billboard Hot 100 chart.

The ranking is their highest since “(If You’re Wondering If I Want You To) I Want You To” came in at number 81 in 2009. Weezer’s cover of “Africa” has seen much approval from fans including Toto co-founder and guitarist Steve Lukather who tweeted Toto would in turn record a Weezer cover.

We’ll keep you posted when it’s released.
