Alexandra Stan (born June 10, 1989 in Constanța, Romania as Alexandra Ioana Stan) is a Romanian singer-songwriter, model and occasional dancer. She begun her career by releasing her debut single "Lollipop (Param Pam Pam)", which was difused by radio stations arount the world, but failed to enter any international chart. Her next single "Mr. Saxobeat" was also distributed by her long-time managers and producers' label MAAN Studio. It became a worldwide success when it reached number-one on nine international charts and got Gold and Platinum certification awards around the world for selling an estimate of 10,000,000 copies of it worldwide. Her next records entitled "Get Back (ASAP)" and "One Million" were also praised and seen in charts around the world, especially in Eastern Europe. She released her debut album "Saxobeats" in late 2011. The record gained major sales and reached the top-fourty in several album charts. 2013, Stan rose to fame after it was reported by worldwide newspapers that she was beaten by her manger Marcel Prodan, which she later sued for blackmailing and injuring.
