Tarkan Tries Arabesque
Kibariye's arabesque take on Tarkan also lends its name to her album, Gülümse Kaderine.
Kibariye's cover version of Tarkan's 2003 song stands out from the rest of her album, as it is a duet between Tarkan and Kibariye. It was also arranged by Ozan Çolakoğlu, who has worked with Tarkan since his debut Turkish language album in 1992.
Tarkan returned to Turkey, from promoting his new album in Germany, to film a music video for the song this week, putting an end to celebrity press speculation that the duet had been merely been constructed in the studio from Tarkan's pre-recorded voice and not a new re-working of the song.
On the film set, Tarkan told reporters, "This song was perfect for Kibariye. I was only to happy to go back into the studio and sing it with her."
Those wishing to see the music video should keep checking the Tarkan community for further information.
