Billy Ray Cyrus is behind yet another questionable collaboration. Late last year, Cyrus teamed up with rap-rocker Fred Durst for a performance on Arsenio and now he's taking the logical next step: releasing a country-rap sequel to his hit "Achy Breaky Heart."

Trust me, it only gets more confusing from here.
"Achy Breaky 2" is a team-up with Buck 22. And the video featuring twerking aliens, EDM beats, cryogenic chambers and an introduction from Larry King. Literally none of that is made up.
Buck 22 explained why this exists in a statement.
"I asked [Billy Ray Cyrus] 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 said. "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. He liked what he heard and, weeks later, arrived at the session to record this track."
Want a little bit more icing on this absurdity cake? Buck 22 is the son of Dionne Warwick and jazz drummer Bill Elliott.
