Listen to J Balvin & Jon Pardi's covers of Metallica's "Wherever I May Roam"

The worlds of reggaeton and country unite on Metallica's Blacklist album, an upcoming tribute to the metal legends' 1991 self-titled record, aka The Black Album.

The latest covers to be released from the star-studded compilation are versions of "Wherever I May Roam" by J Balvin and Jon Pardi. Balvin's rendition finds him rapping in Spanish over samples of the original song, while Pardi turns the track into a dark country epic.

Both covers are available now for digital download.

The Metallica Blacklist will be released September 10. In recent weeks, Metallica has shared covers of songs including  "Sad but True," "Holier than Thou" and "The Unforgiven," recorded by the likes of St. Vincent, Biffy Clyro and others.

The compilation also includes the previously released all-star version of "Nothing Else Matters" featuring Miley Cyrus, Metallica's Robert Trujillo, Red Hot Chili Peppers drummer Chad Smith, Elton John, guitarist/producer Andrew Watt and cellist Yo-Yo Ma.

Meanwhile, Metallica has also dug up a live version of "Wherever I May Roam," recorded in October 1991. It's one of many bonus tracks included on the upcoming 30th anniversary reissue of The Black Album, which also arrives September 10.
