Alexandra Ioana Stan, better known as Alexandra Stan (born 10 June 1989) is a Romanian singer and model. She released her debut single, “Lollipop (Param Pam Pam)” in late 2009, peaking at number-eighteen in her native country.
Her second release dance hit, “Mr. Saxobeat”, became her worldwide breakthrough hit, selling almost 1,000,000 copies in less than a year and reaching the top five in over twenty countries, such as New Zealand and the United Kingdom, and the top 10 in Australia, plus top 30 in Canada and United States. She released her debut album in August 2011, titled Saxobeats. The album spawned two more singles: “Get Back (ASAP)” and “1,000,000”, the latter featuring rapper Carlprit. On 4 June 2012, she released a new single, “Lemonade”.
In June 2013 she was hospitalized and concerts were canceled. While her staff initially claimed she was involved in an accident, she later accused her manager, Marcel Prodan, of beating her. On 18 June, Alexandra Stan filed a criminal complaint against Prodan for blackmail. She plans to add “bodily injury” and “burglary” to the complaint. Her new album was supposed to be released in September 2013, but due to the incident with her manager, the release has been postponed.
