Thanks to the tireless efforts of Twitter user weezerafrica, we finally have the cover we never knew we needed: Weezer covering “Africa” by Toto. The Twitter user tweeted at Weezer frontman Rivers Cuomo back in December jokingly asking him to cover the legendary Toto song. For months they continued tweeting at the band while gaining hundreds of followers supporting the cause.
Just a few days ago the band released a cover from Toto, but not the song everyone was waiting for, covering “Rosanna.” However after months of lobbying and tweeting, the band finally delivered. Take a listen to the song below.
The original cover was praised by Toto’s guitarist Steve Lukather.
The twitter account was obviously reveling in their victory today with the release of the song.
