Elena Alexandra Apostoleanu (born 16 October 1986), professionally known as Inna, is a Romanian-born female singer, dancer and philantrophist. She rose to major fame when she became the first European female vocalist to surpass one billion total views on YouTube, having accomplished this milestone in February 2012.[2][3] Inna's debut studio album Hot (2009) was an international success, with it appearing in many record charts around the world and reaching the top-ten in Czech Republic, France, Scotland and the United Kingdom. The album's lead single of the same name charted worldwide, topping in 2009 a United States year-end chart.[4] Furthermore, it became went Gold and Platinum in countries like Spain, Norway or Italy.[5][6][7] The song won the award for the MTV Europe Music Award for Best Romanian Act at the 2009 MTV Europe Music Awards ceremony. "Déjà Vu" and "Amazing", the record's next released singles, achieved each commercial success and heavy airplay in more European countries. Subsequently, they reached top-ten peak positions on the French Singles Chart and were included in the list of the best-selling songs of 2010 in France.[8]

I Am the Club Rocker (2011), Inna's sophomore record, was again produced by native trio Play&Win and received the Romanian-Album-of-the-Year-award from her label Roton. Furthermore, it achieved Gold status in Romania and Poland.[9][10] The first released single called "Sun Is Up" went one of her most successful singles in her career, with it selling 125,000 copies in France[11] and 2 million copies worldwide. "Sun Is Up" subsequently achieved three nominations at the 2011 Romanian Music Awards and won the Eurodanceweb Award that year.[12][13] Both Flo Rida and Juan Magan are featured on "I Am The Club Rocker" on "Club Rocker" and "Un Momento", respectively. The latter one rose to fame, as it charted at number-four on the Lebanese Top 20 and within the top-twenty in Slovakia, Austria and Poland.

Her third studio album Party Never Ends (2013) failed to achieve the same success of its predecessors, with its highest charting position being the number-ten spot on the Mexican Albums Chart. However, the record produced some successful collaborations between her and international artists like Daddy Yankee and Yandel. Subsequently, Inna began working on her fourth overall full-length record. "Cola Song" was released then as the first single from the album. While it features J Balvin, it became a massive hit throughout Europe and was certified Platinum by PROMUSICAE.[14] Inna announced via Facebook that her self-titled upcoming studio album would premiere on September 15, 2015.[15] Particularly, a re-edited version of the album was released to Japanese retrailers on July 31, 2015.

Inna's portofolio includes numerous awards, such as two MTV Europe Music Awards and over thirteen awards in three consecutive years at the MTV Romania Music Awards. As of May 2011, Inna has sold over 100,000 albums and over 600,000 singles in the United Kingdom.[16] At the end of 2011 Inna became the richest recording artist in Romania and in Eastern Europe.[17][18][19] Her net worth is over 10 million euros.[20] As of April 2014, she has sold over 3 million copies of her 3 studio albums.[21]

Elena Alexandra Apostoleanu was born on October 16, 1986 in the resort of Neptun, Romania, near Mangalia on the Black Sea.[22] Her grandmother and mother were both occasional singers at local parties or night clubs.[22] When she was a teenager, Inna listened to a large variety of musical genres including electro house and europop. However, she also used to listen to Beyoncé, Celine Dion or Whitney Houston.[23][24] She went to the Mangalia Economical Lyceum high school in Mangalia, since renamed "Colegiul Economic Mangalia" — Mangalia Economy College.[25] After graduating the high school, she studied Political science at the Ovidius University in Constanţa, Romania.[26] After Inna unsuccessfully attented the auditions for Romanian band A.S.I.A, she took a job as a sales assistant in a shop in Neptun, selling slippers.[27][28] In 2007, the producer and Play & Win-member Marcel Botezan heard Inna singing in a supermarket and offered her a contract with Roton Records.[27] At the end of 2007, Inna signed a contract with Romanian producers Play & Win and started recording her first tracks.[27] Subsequently, she took the stage name "Alessandra" in 2008 and entered two songs produced by Play & Win for the selection to represent Romania in the Eurovision Song Contest. However, neither ("Goodbye" and "Sorry") was selected. The latter one was later performed live on the primetime TV show "Teo!" in March 2008, and "Sorry" became a viral hit within a couple of months in Romania.[29] After the unsuccessful attempt, the producing trio and Alessandra chose to move from a pop ballad style to house music. Thus, Inna recorded some new tracks including a demo for "Hot" and "Left Right".[27] When interviewed about the choice of "Inna" as her stage name, she revealed that her late grandfather called her this way, being a hypocorism for her given name Elena.[30]

Both Inna and U.S. singer Ke$ha became the first artists on this chart to swap each other's number-one chart positions with debut singles, with Inna's "Hot" succeeding Ke$ha's "Tik Tok" and then having the latter return the favor.[39][40]

"Love" was announced to be Inna's second single.

Subsequently, the law announced that the song was cleared of plagiarism.[100]

"Un Momento", a collaboration with Spanish reggaeton singer Juan Magan, became Inna's next single and her highest-charting single in Slovakia when it peaked at number-four on the Airplay Chart. It barely missed the top-ten in Romania, reaching number-twelve. The following release off the album was "Endless", which became "I Am the Club Rocker" 's highest charting single in Romania, peaking at number-five on the native Romanian Top 100.[101] The fifth and last single "WOW" premiered on April 6, 2012.

Inna named David Guetta (pictured) one of her main sources of inspiration

Inna has been compared to Shakira, Rihanna, Britney Spears, and Lady Gaga.[171] In her teens, Inna performed with a pop rock band that did not achieve much success.[23][172] Her first recordings are the ballads and soft pop/rock songs "Goodbye", "Sorry" and the Romanian language song "Oare" (Really), which were not released until her later success.

After meeting the producers making up Play & Win, her musical style changed radically. Dance and club songs became her most frequent recordings.[173] Inna's second album called I Am the Club Rocker contains more down-midtempo songs than the previous Hot, with songs like "Put Your Hands Up" or "Endless". The album also contains a tropical—flavored track "Un Momento" which is Inna's first movement toward R&B music. On December 1, 2011, Inna covered the song "Mai frumoasa", a classic pop song in Romania, originally performed by Laura Stoica. In an interview with a DJ from Fun Radio, Inna stated that her main sources of inspiration are David Guetta, Kelly Rowland and Kylie Minogue, but she also listed Beyoncé, Lady Gaga and Shakira as her idols. In an interview with Cătălin Măruţă, on Pro TV's show "Happy Hour", she stated that her Romanian music icons are Andra and the late Mădălina Manole. During an interview for News of the World, Inna cited Swedish House Mafia, The Black Eyed Peas and singer Jessie J as her later inspirations.[174] She also says that her biggest icons that she might never get a chance to meet are P!nk and Shakira.[171] Inna is also influenced by Latin American acts such as RBD, Daddy Yankee or Thalía.
