Tarkan High in the Ratings
After suffering a slip in major Turkish music station Kral's radio and video charts last week, Tarkan has bounced back to claim the number one spot in both with his 2010 album teaser track "Sevdanın Son Vuruşu" ("Love's Last Strike").
Meanwhile, according to figures published by Kral's top ten of the nation for this week, Tarkan has held the number one spot across national radio stations for most airplay in Turkey for the third week running and is the second most listened to artist by local radio stations across Turkey for the second week in a row.
Tarkan's track has also risen one place to number three in its second week in the digital sales chart after entering in at fourth place last week, when Turkish digital sales platforms, such as TTNetMuzik, made the song available for purchase.
Kral's national top ten lists the ten most listened to artists in Turkey for that week according to airplay popularity by national and local radio stations overall, including hard copy and digital sale figures.
