Tarkan a Record Breaker Again

By Adelind Osmanlı reporting from Munich, Germany

Screencap of reportTurkish media portal Haberturk's variety section HTMagazin reports that megastar Tarkan has "debunked the thesis" in one week that the Turkish public are no longer buying albums.

The report writes that at first 100,000 copies were printed of Tarkan's 2010 album Adımı Kalbine Yaz, but after high demand for the record another three extra issues of 50,000 copies each were made.

HITT music said that stores have run out of copies in many places and that in some regions the supply isn't meeting the demand for the album, HTMagazin writes.

Marking it up as the highest selling album in recent years capturing figures in a week what other artists manage in a year, it has succeeded to top the highest selling album lists in just seven days of release.

It's expected that the album will pass the 300,000 mark soon, while HITT has said that the latest songs have been clicked on the net nearly a million times in total.
