King Tarkan at Number 1

By Adelind Osmanlı reporting from Munich, Germany

Tarkan climbs the Kral music charts without having released an albumTurkish megastar Tarkan's "Sevdanın Son Vuruşu" ("Love's Last Strike") continues its climb on radio top ten play lists this week, with it reaching the number one spot at major music music station Kral.

While at number four and climbing on Pal FM's top ten, Kral's music chart for its radio station sees the track climb up to its highest spot in its airplay list.

The song has also captured third place on Kral TV's top video singles charts in its third week, even though the artist hasn't filmed an official video.

Kral is rotating a newly re-edited version of the original VMA performance it was using previously. It had also rotated a specially prepared video by the station when the song had initially been released, making this the third video version of the song by the music 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.
