Alexandra Ioana Stan (born 10 June 1989), better known as Alexandra Stan, is a Romanian singer and model. She released her debut single, “Lollipop” in late 2009, peaking at number-eighteen in her native country.
Her second release dance hit, “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, 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” and “1,000,000”, the latter featuring rapper Carlprit. On 4 June 2012, she released a new single, “Lemonade” taking a different musical direction away from her initial euro dance sound.
Following a break Alexandra’s newest single is called “Thanks For Leaving” released on 28 April 2014. It foretells a different musical direction to a more reflective, mature pop sound. This video, filmed in the US, also represents an expressive, autobiographical approach and a clear attempt to appeal more internationally.
