O-Zone - "Dragostea Din Tei" (2003)

The history of the most popular hit in 2003 ...

The hit of 2003, which everyone forgot, but everyone heard at least once ...

Probably there is no such person who would not have heard this hit ... And its history originates in 2003! It was then that the song was released as part of DISCO-Zone, a studio album by a young band from Moldova, O-Zone.

As a result, "Love Under the Limes" (this is how the name of the hit is translated) became the biggest breakthrough in the career of a young group!

A little about the song...

"Dragostea Din Tei" became the most successful single by pop group O-Zone. The song received a lot of positive feedback from critics, and also became viral far beyond the borders of the guys' homeland ... You can say that the track became an international hit!

The song topped the charts in a number of countries: France, Germany, Austria, Great Britain... It's amazing, but without knowing it, O-Zone recorded the fourth most popular single in France of the 21st century! The record was sold with a circulation of approximately 8,000,000 copies.

Gradually, the popularity of the track faded away... Over time, people began to forget about the song, plus more and more new names and hits were in the lead... A new wave of fame for the song began to be brought by bloggers who shoot various videos for it, as well as artists who recorded on "Dragostea Din Tei" covers.

In the fall of 2012, a remix of this song called "Numa Numa 2" was posted on YouTube, recorded by its author Dan Balan (O-Zone leader) with the participation of composer Marley Waters.

In general, the song was the most popular at that time in Europe, taking the position of the leader in more than 27 countries! And today "Dragostea Din Tei" is one of the best selling singles of all time!

Curious fact, but part of the chorus is inspired by the Piano Sonata No. 17 (Mozart).

Also later, an English version of the song "Ma Ya Hi" performed by Balan and Lukas Prat was released:
