Yes indeed — and guess what her newest video is called: none other than what comes after “Friday” — Saturday. DUH!
In case you lack the patience to sit through all four minutes and eight seconds of the now-16-year-old’s “riveting” second smash hit, here’s a rundown of its highlights [WARNING: SPOILER ALERT]:
Repetitive slow-motion partying scenes
The repetition of “I don’t want this Saturday to end” about as many times as it might take for a self-respecting music lover to experience internal combustion
Numerous reiterations of the unbelievable fact that indeed, yesterday was Friday, and today is Saturday.
And, if you listen carefully, right at the beginning of the song she is heard talking about jam and peanut butter. What a thrilling gem!
We’re not even sure if this qualifies as “so bad that it’s good”. Oh, and just when you think you’ll never see that tacky iconic flowing arm movement in the car from “Friday”, whoop, there it is in Saturday!
We might be alone in our disdain, though — “Saturday” has so far garnered a very respectable 8.7 million views since it was first uploaded two days ago.
But don’t let us form your judgement of the video! Watch it and do so yourself.
As Singapore reels from its first riot in more than 40 years, the people of Little India — shopkeepers, residents and frequent visitors alike — are still in shock and disbelief over the events that unfolded on the night of Sunday, 8 December.
Meanwhile, vice chairman of the Little India Shopkeepers and Heritage Association S. Rajagopal tells Yahoo Singapore a previously untold version of events, that sheds significant light on why the anger of 400 men could have been ignited over what initially appeared to be an innocuous road accident.
Watch what he and the other shopkeepers and residents of Little India have to say in our video.

Industrial design graduate, from National University of Singapore (NUS), Siew Ming Cheng, recently baffled the country with her latest invention, which could possibly work as a weapon for people with enochlophobia - the fear of crowds.
She has designed a lethal looking spiky vest so the wearer can protect his or her personal space while being stuck in a crowded train.
"The vest is made of strips of spiky, flexible plastic material found in the gardening section of a handy store. The strips are looped together with cable ties. Fittingly, it was normally used to keep birds and cats away from plants," she said on her Behance site.
But seriously, who would wear the ugly thing that looks like a prop for a futuristic gladiator costume?
Even Cheng has not tried wearing the vest in public yet, according to business and innovation website Fast Company.
Cheng produced the idea, as an undergrad, during a 1.5 day “Chindogu” workshop with German furniture designer, Werner Aisslinger.
“Chindogu" refers to the art of making inventions that serve an almost useful purpose when they are, in reality, worthless, according to Web Urbanist.
The photo of Cheng wearing the green spiky vest has been making its rounds on Facebook by users who mainly seem completely baffled by the former student’s “ingenious” creation.

Two teenagers used nearly 80,000 Lego bricks to build a replica of Lord of the Rings’ dwarf home
Jack Bittner (left), 18, and Blake Baer (right), 17, used nearly 80,000 Lego bricks to build a super detailed replica of “Erebor”, which is home to the dwarves from J. R. R. Tolkien’s “The Hobbit”.
The home belongs to the “Longbeards”, which is a clan of dwarves from the epic movie. It is also where the one true ring, Arkenstone, which the movie mainly revolves around, was discovered and subsequently lost, according to the story.
According to tech blog Gizmodo, it took the duo about 400 hours to build the replica which weighs about 90kg and is about 1.5m long.
Huffington Post reported in 2012, the duo had built a Lego replica of “Rivendell”, which is home to the elves from the same movie.
