Apparently Billy Ray Cyrus is getting all aboard the twerking train in a new music video called "Achy Breaky 2." This is a trend -- we wish the 52-year-old had never hopped on.
The country star-turned-Miley's dad is now starring in rapper Buck 22's hip hop remix of the crooner's 1992 smash hit, "Achy Breaky Heart." The collab featured an army of scantily clads dancers (we aren't sure if they are only waring electrical tape or paint -- but it's not a lot) -- twerking around in what appears to be a spaceship as Billy Ray and Buck 22 rock out.
Buck 22 (whose real name is Damon Elliott) explained how the unlikely collaboration happened: "I asked if [Billy Ray] 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.'"
The producer/rapper continued, "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."
And the rest is history -- a history of a 1992 song that we wish we could forget. While his twerking queen of a daughter isn't in this video (thank God) -- we still know she is to blame.
Don't tell my achy break heart? How 'bout don't tell our ears!
