Tarkan Climbing the Charts

By Adelind Osmanlı reporting from Munich, Germany

Tarkan climbs the Kral music charts without having released an albumWith the news that Tarkan's "Sevdanın Son Vuruşu" ("Love's Last Strike") has become the third most played song on Turkish radio stations, the track has continued its climb on radio top ten play lists last week.

At number five and climbing on Pal FM's top ten, looking at major Turkish music station Kral's charts on its radio and TV stations this week, the track climbs up to number two in its radio chart, and has captured fourth place at the TV station's top video singles in its second week, even though the artist hasn't filmed an official video.

Kral is rotating the VMA performance and a specially prepared video by the station.

It's a first-ever feat for a Turkish artist to chart without having released an album or single or filmed a video single to an official digital release.
