"Stereo Love" is a 2009 song recorded by Romanian DJ Edward Maya with Moldovan-Romanian musician Vika Jigulina, released as their debut single in late 2009 from Maya's album, The Stereo Love Show. The refrain is from "Bayatılar", composed by Azerbaijani musician Eldar Mansurov. It became a worldwide hit in nightclubs and rose to the top of Brazilian, French, Dutch, Turkish, Finnish, Norwegian, Spanish, Swedish, Swiss Romandy and Irish charts as well as going platinum in the UK, Germany, America, and Canada, becoming the second best-selling song from Romania after “Dragostea din tei”.
The song and the music video were both included on the compilation NRJ Music Awards 2010 .The music video was filmed in Mykonos, Greece, as Edward Maya stated in an interview that Greece "was a place that I fell in love with". In 2011, the song was awarded as top dance song at the Billboard Music Awards.
"Stereo Love" is set in common time with a moderate tempo of 127 beats per minute. It is set in the key of C# minorwith a simple chord progression of C#m-A-E-G#m. The song is most notable for featuring a riff played with an accordion by Maya.
Lyrically the song speaks of a passionate love between two people that is now dying, and their struggle to rekindle that flame.
In the autumn of 2009, during his stay in Greece, Azerbaijani composer Eldar Mansurov contacted the Romanian Office for Copyright claiming the refrain of "Stereo Love" was a copy of a tune from his popular 1989 composition "Bayatılar". In the video clip, the composer of "Stereo Love" was indicated as "anonymous". Both the Office and Edward Maya later confirmed that Mansurov's work was in fact used in the making of "Stereo Love". Maya commented by saying he was "fascinated" by the accordion version of "Bayatılar" he had come across on the Internet earlier in 2009 and claimed he had tried to contact the author but failed due to his busy schedule. On 19 January 2010, Edward Maya arrived in Baku, Azerbaijan, where he signed an agreement with Eldar Mansurov affirming their co-authorship of "Stereo Love".
The keyboard riff of this song was also used as a theme to "Zalim", a ubiquitous song written by the Turkish singer and songwriter Sezen Aksu, first recorded and released in 1995 by her former bassist and backing vocalist Levent Yüksel which was a smash hit that year, and then in 1996 by Sezen Aksu herself.
