They mainly play eurodance music and are famous for the single Dragostea Din Tei, a notable summer hit which reached Number 1 in the singles charts of many countries during 2003 and 2004, and Number 3 in the United Kingdom. The follow-up single Despre Tine had similar success across Europe.
O-Zone was originally the idea of Bălan, and the group consisted of 2 members in 2000; Petru and Bălan himself.
They enjoyed a brief resurgence in global popularity due to the internet success of the 'Numa Numa Dance', featuring Gary Brolsma lip-synching and dance to the first minute of the song Dragostea Din Tei.
O-Zone split up in 2005; each artist went on to make solo careers, and there are no current plans to make any more music as O-Zone.
Dan and Arsenie began singing in English while Radu continued singing in Romanian.
