Tarkan Still Top of Playlists

By Adelind Osmanlı reporting from Munich, Germany

Tarkan holds the top spot of national radio airplay in Turkey according to Kral figuresTarkan has held the number one spot across national radio stations for most airplay in Turkey for the second week running with his 2010 album teaser track "Sevdanın Son Vuruşu" ("Love's Last Strike"), according to Kral statistics, while the singer is Turkey's fourth most listened to artist with his song's fourth week in figures published by Nielsen Music Control.

Although slipping back to third place from its top position in Kral's own radio chart - but holding onto second place up from third in its video charts - Turkey's megastar manages to jump up from seventh position last week to the second most listened to artist by local radio stations across Turkey, in figures published by Kral.

Major Turkish music station Kral's top ten of the nation 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.

Tarkan's track has also entered the digital sales chart this week at fourth place, after Turkish digital sales platform TTNetMuzik made the song available to buy for its users.

The song is currently at second place in TTNetMuzik's own most downloaded track chart, even though the song was added weeks after it was released for free on Tarkan's official site, Tarkan.com.
