Billy Ray Cyrus Is Abducted by Aliens in ‘Achy Breaky 2’ Video
Billy Ray Cyrus is reprising his 1992 hit, “Achy Breaky Heart,“ and this time it’s getting a fresh, hip-hop remix!
The country singer has teamed up with producer-turned-rapper, Buck 22 aka Damon Elliot, for “Achy Breaky 2.” This time around, Billy Ray is leaving the song’s original country twang behind and replacing it with an EDM beat.
Larry King introduces the video with a mock warning to his viewers about an “unidentified flying object seen transcending over Europe.” Then, Billy Ray and a young Buck 22 are beamed up to a spaceship while they’re out on a walk. When they emerge inside the UFO, the rapper is now an adult and … there are scantily-clad, twerking aliens everywhere.
While twerking is more Miley Cyrus‘ thing, the songstress is not forgotten in the song as Buck 22 raps, “Miley keeps on twerkin’ / daddy’s song is workin’.”
The video was released on Monday, and in a tweet about it, Billy wrote, “Let er go, boys!”
