Press Snippets: Tarkan's Fire Burns Turkey
As one report writes that "Tarkan's fire sweeps across Turkey", another article prints that Tarkan has signed his name to a first in Turkey by breaking a distribution record with his latest album.
It writes that Tarkan has exploded back on to the Turkish music scene, with 100,000 copies of his latest album flying out of the door within just days of its release.
Adding that Tarkan has broken album and poster sale records in Turkey, the article adds that "it looks like Tarkan is going to make tremendous noise with his new album".

And paper Sabah has published a report about Tarkan's track "Kayıp" from his latest album, claiming that the poem the singer reads out at the end of the song made him cry during one take in the studio.
The article prints out the poem in its entirety, whilst claiming that Günay Çoban's words had made the Turkish megastar cry as he read them.
"The words express me perfectly," the report quotes Tarkan as saying about ode to a lost loved one, before writing that the recording in which the artist cried was not used for the final cut of the track.
"Now everyone is wondering which woman it is," the Sabah article concludes.
The article quotes Tarkan as saying that he is waiting for everyone to listen to his songs - the teaser samples of which have been breaking viewing figures on the net - and then he will respond accordingly.
The HTMagazin report claims that Tarkan has changed his mind about filming a video to "Sevdanın Son Vuruşu" ("Love's Last Strike"), and that he is working on a video to his track "Adımı Kalbine Yaz" - but the report writes that depending on public opinion this could change, too.
Although there were rumours that Tarkan was going to use a new photo shoot for the 2010 record, Bekor was previously credited for the photograph used on the May digital single release "Sevdanın Son Vuruşu" ("Love's Last Strike") from the album.
The Cumhuriyet report reminds its readers that Tarkan's first meeting with his public since the record's release will be for a scheduled performance at the Harbiye on 31 July, as paper Hürriyet's variety supplement Kelebek writes that "The Show Goes On" - with Tarkan set to sing live for his fans in Istanbul.
