More than two decades after "Achy Breaky Heart" made Billy Ray Cyrus an international star, the country singer has updated his 1992 hit song.
Cyrus teamed up with rapper Buck-22, the son of Dionne Warwick, for "Achy Breaky 2," a hip-hop version of the original tune.

The new song begins with talk show host Larry King "interrupting" for a report about an alien abduction, then it cuts to Cyrus and a "young" Buck-22 walking along a country road. The lyrics include references to daughter Miley Cyrus' twerking. A music video for the song appeared Tuesday.
Billy Ray Cyrus, 52, and Dionne Warwick met last year when they recorded a duet called "Hope is Just Ahead" to benefit the Do The Write Thing National Campaign to Stop Violence initiative, according to WebProNews.com.
Written by Don Von Tress as a country song, Cyrus sold millions of records with the original recording. The genesis for the remake occurred shortly after Cyrus met Buck-22.
"I took a chance and asked if he would mind if I could take a crack at remaking 'Achy Breaky Heart' and he looked at me for a moment, and said 'lots of people have tried already, but go for it,'" Buck 22 told Complex magazine.
"He didn't have a clue that I had already gone into the lab and cooked up a demo of what I thought would be a fun EDM/hip-hop styled version, which at the time only had a sample from the original of his voice."
