Last month Larry King, out of all people, announced country singer and Miley Cyrus' dad, Billy Ray Cyrus, would be releasing a "hip-hop version" of his 1992 hit single "Achy Breaky Heart." 

Well, that video is here now, and it's as amazing as you would think it could be. Billy Ray teams up with rapper Buck 22, who is the son of legendary R&B singer Dionne Warwick, where the two get beamed up into an intergalactic party. The spaceship is filled with a number of scantily clad women, and they're clearly out to have a good time. Well, Billy Ray Cyrus and Buck 22 give them just that, and a bit more. Buck 22 even references Miley's twerking in his raps, because that's completely appropriate here. Larry King also makes an appearance. You have to watch this.

"Achy Breaky 2" is available now on iTunes. If you're still spellbound as to how this all came about, read what Buck 22 had to say about his collaboration with Billy Ray Cyrus below.

During a break, 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”---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.
