Romanian Edward Maya Seduces the Dancefloor with “Stereo Love”

24-year old producer and performer Edward Maya made his breakthrough in the Eurovision Song Contest 2006 when his song “Tornero” went to fourth place. The song was performed by Mihai Traistariu . Maya returned to the charts last summer with “Stereo Love,” a track that has spread through Europe at a very slow pace.  The song initially made it to No.2 in native Romania, adding No.1 positions in France, Estonia and Holland. It also peaked at No.2 in Russia and Belgium.

The track borrows heavily from Azerbaijani  composer Eldar Mansurov’s 1989 composition “Bayatilar.” Apparently, Maya had failed to make contact with Mansurov in order to clear the sample. This has now been rectified and Mansurov received writer’s credits.

“Stereo Love” has cracked the top ten in Sweden on the singles chart published last Thursday. A sure bet is that the track will best the No.7 position.

The track features Vika Jigulina on vocals.
