The hit single Weezer owe’s to a 14-year-old named Mary!
Last December, Mary started an online campaign to have Weezer cover Toto’s signature hit song, “Africa.” After one false start, the band obliged and released a studio cover of the hit song.
Toto’s “Africa” hit #1 on the Billboard 100 in February of 1983 and now the song is charting again. Weezer’s cover entered the Billboard 100 at 89. This is Weezer’s first song on the chart this century. The last time they did it was 2009 when “(If You’re Wondering If I Want You To) I Want You To” reached at 81.
Now what the world needs is for Toto to cover Weezer. Get on it internet!
