Tarkan Tops National, Local Stations
Tarkan Still in Nation's Top 10
According to figures published by Kral's top ten of the nation for this week, Tarkan continues to hold the number one spot across national radio stations for most airplay, and has also topped the charts for most listened to artist by local Turkish radio stations.
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.
However, Tarkan's track has slipped down to eighth position in the digital sales chart, and according to Nielsen Music Control, has slipped out of the top five most listened to songs on Turkish radios for this week. The track had kept a third position for three weeks.
The Nielsen ratings monitor music broadcast on over 700 radio and television stations across 18 countries worldwide, and is regarded as a good indicator of the current share of radio airplay in the registered country.
Tarkan Number 1 on Sponsor TV Station
Meanwhile, after securing the two number one spots in major Turkish music station Kral's radio and video charts, Tarkan continues to hold the top position with "Sevdanın Son Vuruşu" ("Love's Last Strike") on the station's TV charts, but slips one place back to two in Kral's radio charts.
Tarkan's music company HITT is organising its 6th annual summer open air concerts at the Harbiye in Istanbul under the sponsorship of Kral this year, set to kick-start with a scheduled performance by Tarkan on 31 July.
