10 Best Euro-Dance One-Hit Wonders Of The New Millennium
1. “Mr. Saxobeat” By Alexandra Stan (2010) — Peaked At #21
Topping off this list is the song that everyone both in America and Europe simply could not get out of their heads! “Mr. Saxobeat” debuted back in 2010, yet its catchiness doesn’t come off as cheesy when re-listening to it four years later. We have Romania to thank again for this upbeat hit, which is where singer Alexandra Stan is from.
“Mr. Saxobeat” was the second single off Stan’s debut LP, Saxobeats, and obviously became the most successful. The artist incorporated horn instrumentation way before tunes like “Problem” and “Talk Dirty” even existed — how’s that for a musical trendsetter? Alexandra Stan is still putting out music (it’s mainly stationed in Japan), but “Mr. Saxobeat” will most likely remain her one-hit wonder. Yet we definitely don’t think that is a bad thing, don’t you agree?
