First time I've seen this Weezer cover of Africa....

I suppose my life is now complete. :lol:


Glad I could complete your life. And it appears it doesn't stop there. The following is from a story in Yahoo Entertainment about how this cover has apparently gone a bit viral, to Weezer's benefit.

https://www.yahoo.com/entertainment/frightened-thing-become-totos-steve-porcaro-talks-amusing-unexpected-africa-phenomenon-154943982.html


“I think it was kind of sinking in just how big it was becoming. Maybe it was just my imagination, but I thought maybe on [Weezer leader] Rivers Cuomo’s face, there was an expression like, ‘Oh s***, I might have to play this the rest of my life.’”

Toto keyboardist Steve Porcaro is talking about that time this past June when he dropped in on Weezer’s Jimmy Kimmel performance of Toto’s beloved 1982 smash “Africa.” Cuomo and company had recorded the song on a dare — they were responding to a 15-year-old fan’s tireless internet crusade to get Weezer to cover the song, after she heard it on Stranger Things — but their version turned into a true phenomenon, surprisingly becoming the alt-rock band’s first Hot 100 hit in eight years. (Toto just returned the favor by covering Weezer’s “Hash Pipe,” which is being rush-released by Republic Records this Friday, Aug. 10.)
