Los Angeles — Weezer has released a cover of Toto's Africa after a teenage fan pressed the group for months on social media to record the song.

The teen, known as @weezerafrica, jokingly started lobbying the 1990s band on Twitter in December. The campaign gained followers.

Weezer released a cover of Toto's Rosanna on 24 May. But the teen was not satisfied.

The group rolled out Africa on Tuesday.
