Alexandra Stan is a Romanian singer and songwriter. Born in the city of Constanța, Romania, she made her worldwide breakthrough with the 2011 single “Mr. Saxobeat”, written and produced by Marcel Prodan and Andrei Nemirschi. They discovered Stan at a karaoke bar in 2009 and offered her a contract with their label, Maan Records. The track followed the singer’s debut recording, “Lollipop (Param Pam Pam)” (2009), which brought Stan fame in her native country. “Mr. Saxobeat” quickly achieved commercial success in Romania and then abroad, reaching number one in several countries. Saxobeats, her debut studio album, was released in August 2011, featuring the follow-up single “Get Back (ASAP)” (2011). Both the latter release and “Lemonade” (2012) were moderate hits in Europe.
