Top Five Tarkan

By Adelind Osmanlı reporting from Munich, Germany

Tarkan on BillboardLast week Tarkan Deluxe reported how Tarkan featured on the Turkish Billboard's weekly run-down of the movers and shakers in the national music charts to make the highest jump by an artist in the first days of September.

This week the Turkish pop star has jumped another twenty places to reach the top five of the Turkish Billboard Top 20, with his fourth music video "Dilli Düdük" now at number four.

This is Tarkan's fourth track to make it to the top five of the music charts from his award-winning 2007 album Metamorfoz. The pop star had previously hit the second highest position of the Billboard charts with his track "Pare Pare" in May and "Arada Bir" in June. Before that he had hit number one with "Vay Anam Vay", which had also held on to the number two slot for three months.

Billboard's ratings - which aim to unify play lists in terms of popularity - are based on air play figures from Nielsen Music Control, the world respected research media company that monitors radio and TV stations across Turkey, and yearly sales figures collected by the Turkish Phonographic Industry.

The Turkish subsidiary of Billboard has recently divided its Turkish music charts into two, with each week the top pop and rock tracks being listed separately.
