Weezer finally relented and may want to send that fan a gift basket. Their "Africa" cover is now the band's biggest hit in nine years, landing at No. 89 on the Billboard Hot 100.
The Twitter account @weezerafrica had sent the band hundreds of tweets with the hashtag #WeezerCoverAfrica, eventually attracting press and the attention of Weezer.
The band's upcoming album Black Album was supposed to drop in May, but that still hasn't happened yet. We'll have to settle for the rains of Africa for now.
