Andreea Bălan ( born 23 June 1984) is a Romanian pop singer. Bălan made her singing debut on the children's television show, Ba da, ba nu, in 1994. Two years later, she released her debut solo album, Amețiți de fum. She enjoyed commercial success as a member of dance duo Andrè, which released six albums between 1998 and 2001. In 2002, the group was awarded four platinum and one gold record for selling 1.5 million album copies. Andrè was influential in bringing platform heels, box braids, mini skirts and push-up bras into fashion.

After the breakup of Andrè, Bălan released another solo album, Te joci cu mine, in 2002. She has since released five major studio albums and 20 music videos. In 2007, Bălan participated in the show Dancing, where she won the competition. She also placed 2nd in the international version, Dancing Around the World, with dance partner Petrișor Ruge. Ranked in the top three best-selling Romanian artists in 2008, she was also among the best-selling Romanian artists in terms of concerts.

Bălan is recognized for her spectacular shows in Romania, successfully combining music and dance in performances with over ten costume changes. Among other artists, she has worked with Connect-R, Keo, Silviu and Puya.
