Billy Ray Cyrus's New Video Features Twerking Aliens For 'Achy Breaky Heart 2'
Billy Ray Cyrus decided that now was a good time to release a hip-hop remix of his 1992 hit “Achy Breaky Heart” with a music video that includes a lot of semi-nude twerking.
Billy Ray Cyrus Releases 'Achy Breaky Heart 2' Video
Cyrus’ “Achy Breaky Heart 2” features the rapping of Buck 22 and some beats that make the original track nearly unrecognizable. A few new lyrics are clear shout outs to his daughter Miley Cyrus. "Miley keeps on twerkin',” raps Buck 22, “Daddy's song is werkin.'" The elder Cyrus also shouts out, “Wrecking ball!” for good measure.
While the song in and of itself is shocking, the video takes it to an entirely new level of bizarre. It starts out with Larry King announcing a UFO landing and then a shot of Billy Ray walking down a dirt road through a sepia tone lens. Then it appears as though he hops onto that UFO, where he has a dance party with twerking aliens. In honor of his country roots, Buck 22 tests his skills in a two-step.

It’s unknown whether Billy Ray Cyrus was deliberately trolling his daughter, or trying his luck with the stunts that have seen her star power inexplicably rise over the last couple of years.
