The song is very popular amongst Latino culture and is played at weddings still to this day, so the collaboration is a wonderful celebration of that tradition. The song is available everywhere today.

According to a press release, Jencarlos Canela jumped at the chance to record with Cyrus,“It’s a song that has transcended cultures and generations. It was an honor to be in Nashville invited by Billy Ray Cyrus and the team. I’m more country than people think.“
The original version of “Achy Breaky Heart,” was released in 1992 and quickly became a worldwide phenomenon that topped charts around the globe and made a superstar out of Cyrus.
