The song Africa by Toto is closing in on 600,000,000 views on YouTube. By why the fuck is song so popular?
Currently with just over 595 million views the video has been YouTube for seven years. That’s 85 million views each year on average. Released in 1982. it’s a typical 80’s cheesefest.
Weezer (who are sadly now crap and have their heads stuck up their asses) covered the song and that video has received 17 million views in 1 year. Covering such a popular song kind of guarantee’s views. Maybe Weird Al Yankovic was trolling Weezer when he suggested they cover Africa.
Even the great 331Erock sucks covering Africa.
