Born in the city of Constanța, Romania, she made her worldwide breakthrough with the 2011 single "Mr. Saxobeat", written and produced by Marcel Prodan and Andrei Nemirschi. They discovered Stan at a karaoke bar in 2009 and offered her a contract with their label, Maan Records.

"Mr. Saxobeat" quickly achieved commercial success in Romania and then abroad, reaching the number one spot in ten countries. Saxobeats, her debut studio album, was released in August 2011.

Two of its singles, "Dance" (2014) and "Cherry Pop" (2014), were successful in Japan. The singer's third studio album, Alesta, was released in March 2016.

Stan has received a number of awards and nominations, including the European Border Breakers Awards, Japan Gold Disc Awards, MTV Europe Music Awards and Romanian Music Awards. She is also referred to as one of the most successful Romanian artists alongside Inna.
