"Cuppa" Chart Watch Update

By Steffan Matrak posted from Moscow, Russia

Although Tarkan's "Cuppa" failed to hit the top slot in most official listings once more this week - after another seven days of major airplay - music station Kral's own compilation chart figures published yesterday show the track's slow crawl upwards.

Kral's published numbers don't synch up completely with figures provided by official monitors MusicTopTR and TelifMetre, but it could indicate the track is on its way to a top three entry on official listings next Friday.

According to Kral, "Cuppa" climbed up the digital sales chart to number 3 at the same time it fell out of the Top 100 tracks for iTunes, and to a third position in Kral's overall chart listings for sales and airplay. Tarkan entered its national radio airplay chart at number 6 this week.

The only slight drop for Tarkan in Kral's charts saw "Cuppa" fall to 7th place in local radio airplay, at the time TelifMetre published it at the top of its chart - the first top position for the track on official charts.

"Cuppa" entered the official Turkish airplay chart in its 30th week as third highest, but has been unable to reach a top three position for two weeks running.

A top position is important for the singer as the club-inspired pop song's release brought with it a lot of social media shade, and has struggled to find an audience in the Turkish charts since causing a stir on its digital drop.

Tarkan's iconic status in Turkey helped the track go viral and temporarily hit the top slot in certain digital charts, but it was unable to generate sufficient interest to significantly dent official airplay listings.


Translation notes: What does "Cuppa" mean?

The artist went on to publish "Cuppa" on his official YouTube account on 21 July, a week after its digital release. A trend fail domestically, views have steadily increased however, attracting over 6 million views in three weeks - the last four million delivered in this past week.
