Tarkan Top of Play Lists
Tarkan has hit the number one spot across national radio stations for most airplay in Turkey for the week beginning 11 June, with his 2010 album teaser track "Sevdanın Son Vuruşu" ("Love's Last Strike"), according to Kral statistics.
Tarkan had previously been at the number five spot last week, making a huge leap in a short period of time.
Meanwhile, Tarkan holds his position as the seventh most listened to artist by local radio stations, and is Turkey's third most listened to artist for a third week in a row as published by Nielsen Music Control.
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.
This makes the Turkish megastar's chart success all the more significant, as the song hasn't been released on hard copy or digitally, meaning Tarkan has charted without figures being boosted by sales.
Top of DJ's Playlist in São Paulo
Elsewhere, there are reports that Tarkan is top of the DJs playlists outside of Turkey, too, with the Turkish megastar's tracks playing alongside Justin Bieber, Akon, Lady Gaga and the Black Eyed Peas.
After having travelled the entire of Brazil, a female TV celebrity turned DJ has been spotted rocking clubs in São Paulo with her set that includes Tarkan at the top of the list.
"The cat did a set list of exclusive pick ups at Club Glory putting the galley to dance the entire night," Brazilian celebrity portal Terra writes.
