It’s been 25 years since “Achy Breaky Heart” was released and people are still feeling it.

Billy Ray Cyrus’ hit song “Achy Breaky Heart” is arguably one of the most known and popular songs from the ’90s. You’ll be pretty hard pressed to find someone who hasn’t heard Cyrus’ biggest hit — and that includes Spanish speakers. That’s because in 1994, the Mexican group Caballo Dorado covered Cyrus’ song and made a Spanish-language version called “No Rompas Más Mi Pobre Corazón.” It quickly became a favorite at weddings, quinceañeras, bautizos and other parties.

It took 25 years but we finally have an “Achy Breaky Heart” Spanglish duet with Cyrus and Caballo Dorado. The song begins with Cyrus giving the listener the country twang they have come to expect. By the second verse, Caballo Dorado joins in and the song is instantly a hip-shaking remake. At one point, Cyrus himself starts singing in Spanish and it is everything. Seriously. Everything. This is just one of the many remakes being done to this classic song to honor its 25 years in the world.

Cyrus, who released a Muscle Shoals remake, told Rolling Stone we should expect an EDM remix soon. Let’s not forget that “Achy Breaky Heart” did get a fun remake back in 2014 with Buck 22 who turned the country song into a twerk-worthy rap/hip-hop hit. It currently has more than 9 million hits on YouTube.

You can definitely call Panamanian rapper El General a pioneer of reggaetón music.

Before Daddy Yankee, Don Omar and Wisin & Yandel, El General dropped ??? tracks such as the 1991 dance hit “Muevelo, Muevelo.”

Although it his music was more reggae than reggaetón, his influence is undeniable. Remember this one?!

We have no idea what “tu pum pum” means but never really stopped to think about it because the song is so damn good.

It’s like El General had the exact formula for a catchy song that would instantly get people on the dance floor. Was it something in his DNA, or perhaps he was a child prodigy of reggaetón? That must be it, right?

El General explains that the reason he produced such intense dance music was because of the devil!

Que?!!

Edgardo Armando Franco, known to the world as El General, is now a 47-year-old Jehovah’s Witness who says he was influenced by “bad company.”

“When I was young, I had dreams of becoming a famous singer, but I knew the truth,” Franco said to El Nuevo Dia. “What happened was that I didn’t remove those dreams from my heart and I began to listen to these bad influences.”

He goes on to say that the lyrics caused him great conflict, but after a few drinks, he went ahead and recorded the now-famous songs.

Those songs played everywhere on the radio,” Franco said. “That was a victory for satan.”

Well, in that case, we’d like to say thank you to el diablo because we’ll always have this beauty:
