Alexandra Stan (born 10 June 1989) is a Romanian singer, songwriter and model. She released her debut single, "Lollipop (Param Pam Pam)", in late 2009, which peaked at number-eighteen in the Romanian Top 100.
"Mr. Saxobeat", became her worldwide breakthrough hit, selling more 10,000,000 copies in less than a year and reaching the top five in over thirty countries, such as New Zealand and the United Kingdom, and the top 10 in Australia, and top 30 in Canada and United States. She released her debut album in August 2011, titled Saxobeats, which sold over four million copies. The album spawned two more singles: "Get Back" and "1,000,000", featuring rapper Carlprit.
On 4 June 2012, Stan released "Lemonade" as the lead single from the re-release of her debut album Saxobeats. The song charted majorly and was certified Gold in Italy by the FIMI. Stan then released "Cliche (Hush Hush)" as the follow-up to "Lemonade" on 27 September 2012, and as the second single from the re-released album. The single failed to achieve the success of its predecessor. A collaboration with Manilla Maniacs for the song "All My People" was selected as the third and final single from the record. The song was released on 1 May 2013, with the latter two singles both receiving moderate success. "All My People" was released on 15 November 2013, when Romania played against Greece for the qualification to the FIFA World Cup 2014 in Brazil.
Stan's second album was released on 27 August 2014 exclusively in Japan, under the label Victor Entertainment. "Dance" and "Cherry Pop" peaked both at #1 in the Japanese iTunes Chart. Stan revealed the international release of her album, "Unlocked", on Facebook. The album was released on 25 November 2014, featuring a collaboration with Connect-R "Vanilla Chocolat".
Stan has been reported to have a net worth of 20,000,000 €. She is also currently one of the wealthiest musical artists in Romania and Eastern Europe.
