Liza Koshy is officially back from her yearlong YouTube hiatus. The Houston, Texas, native unveiled a brand-new music video for her parody song “Dollar Store With Liza" on Wednesday.

The 22-year-old's comeback parody reinterprets Frank Sinatra’s classic “New York, New York” as she gives an ode to the Dollar Store -- which then evolves into an upbeat electro-dance tune. “Start saving to lose/ I’m spending today/ Pay one small price for all of it/ The dollar store/ These other stores lose/ My money today/ But who can empty my pockets?/ The dollar store,” she impressively sings the opening lyrics.

Koshy dances throughout the aisles with fellow money-saving shoppers as they build up to the four-minute-long video’s grand finale of Liza leading a group of glittering Rockette-like dancers.

The video has already earned 2 million views since it was posted. The YouTube sensation thanked her 16 million subscribers for watching and waiting in the description box. “Thank you for watching, thank you for waiting. Honey... I'm home,” she wrote. “EVERY OUNCE OF MY LOVE AND GRATITUDE GOES TO A LONG LIST OF WONDERFUL PEOPLE.”

Koshy added that she wrote the song and created the video with UX Entertainment Group. "Dollar Store With Liza" was directed by Jason Bergh, produced by Andrew Molina and Coutney Carter and choreographed by Sarah Mitchell, with music production by Bruce Wiegner.
