Tarkan Song Tops Powerturk Charts

By Adelind Osmanlı reporting from Munich, Germany

Emir hits the Powerturk Top 40 number one slotThree months after the release of his début video single and album, Turkish pop newcomer Emir has topped the airplay at the Powerturk Top 40 with his Tarkan penned track "Ben Sen Olamam" (I Can't Be You).

Established in 1999, Powerturk TV is one of Turkey's leading music stations, and its airplay charts are based on requests from its respective audience groups.

Tarkan's Own Hitt, Emir

Emir is Tarkan's own music label HITT's latest contribution to Turkish pop music, after the newbie singer managed to snag a meeting with "his generation's idol" - as he has termed the famous popstar - to listen to his songs.

Spotted dining out together recently, the Turkish press quoted Tarkan as saying he found Emir very successful, and that he would continue to support the singer.
