Toto’s song “Africa” continues to be a hit almost 40 years after its release.
The song has officially surpassed one BILLION streams on streaming app Spotify. “This surpasses a dream come true!,” said the song’s co-writer David Paich. “Thank you to our family, friends and fans! ‘Africa’ is the result of a team effort in the studio – resulting in musical magic!”
“Africa” was released on Toto’s 1982 album ‘IV’ and has been continuing a successful run thanks to a cover by Weezer and its inclusion on Netflix’s ‘Stranger Things.’
