Alexandra Stan (born on 10 June 1989) is a Romanian singer and songwriter. Born in the city of Constanța, she made her chart debut with her single, "Mr. Saxobeat", which was written and produced by both Marcel Prodan and Andrei Nemirschi. They have previously discovered her at a karaoke bar in 2009 and offered her a contract with their own label, Maan Records, through which Stan also released a promotional single that year titled "Show Me The Way", and her debut single, "Lollipop (Param Pam Pam)". "Mr. Saxobeat" quickly achieved commercial success in her native Romania and abroad, with it reaching the number one spot of the Romanian Top 100 and topping the record charts in nine other countries, including Germany, where it became the first Romanian-language recording to top the chart since O-Zone's "Dragostea din tei" (2004). Stan's next single, "Get Back (ASAP)", reached number one in Slovakia and the top ten in Romania, Hungary, Finland and Czech Republic. Following this, Saxobeats was made available for purchase as her debut studio album to digital stores over the world, including the United States and Canada.
