As far as Billy Ray Cyrus is concerned, to put a "hip-hop spin" on his 1992 hit single, "Achy Breaky Heart," all he needed was a bevy of scantily clad women, some new dance moves, and a guest appearance from Larry King (of all people). The country star, who is likely best known these days for being the father of Miley Cyrus, teamed up with rapper Buck 22 to release "Achy Breaky 2" with a new beat and an added rap verse. The 52-year-old singer may have taken inspiration from his daughter, who has expanded her range to rap music in recent months, telling Billboard, "A lot of people wanted to try to make me the white Nicki Minaj. That’s not what I’m trying to do. I love ‘hood’ music, but my talent is as a singer." Take a look at Billy Ray's attempted foray into the world of hip-hop below.
