Alexandra Stan was born on June 10, 1989 in Constanta, Romania. Discovering her talent for music at an early age, as a child she took part of a lot of competitions, even the music festival 'Mamaia", where she impressed the audience with her versatile voice. In 2009 she released her debut single "Lollipop," but it was the follow-up "Mr. Saxobeat," which really ignited her career, becoming Stan's first number one single in her home country and entering the singles charts all over Europe.
Romanian record producer Marcel Prodan was the man behind the desk helming this up tempo Eurodance tune. He also co-wrote the song with André Nemirschi, which finds Stan trying to attract a man whom she is in love with.
This won the 2011 Romania Music Award for Best Song.
The song was a massive success in Stan's home country, Romania, topping the singles chart for eight weeks. Other countries where it reached #1 include Austria, Denmark, Germany, Italy and Switzerland.
