Tarkan Holds Third Place

By Adelind Osmanlı reporting from Munich, Germany

Tarkan top third most listened song on Turkish radio for second weekTurkish megastar Tarkan's latest track "Sevdanın Son Vuruşu" ("Love's Last Strike") is the top third most played track on radios in Turkey for a second week in a row, according to Nielsen Music Control, which monitors music broadcast on over 700 radio and television stations across 18 countries worldwide.

Without having released an album or a video to his latest track, Tarkan has achieved a feat no other Turkish artist in Turkey has managed to do, by garnering so much radio time in such a short period.

Turkey's megastar had released "Sevdanın Son Vuruşu" online at his official site Tarkan.com on 11 May and performed the song once at the 16th Kral VMAs on 17 May.

However, the release of Tarkan's 2010 album has been put under some uncertainty, as current reports say Tarkan has postponed its distribution date.

Where previously the album had been set to be released either towards the end of May or the first days of June, now a date in mid-June is being tentatively put forward.

"[It will possibly be] 21 June, but the decision is Tarkan's," Turkish music label DMC rep Samsun Demir tweeted recently.
