Harbiye PR Coup Helps "Cuppa"?
Upholding a top three position elsewhere, music monitor TelifMetre's top ten most played songs for radio airplay sees Tarkan drop to and maintain third place in its published numbers between the last half of August and the first week of September.
Crunching numbers weekly, TelifMetre has been taking a few radio stations off its lists, while still monitoring them, to avoid manipulation of its Top 40 airplay chart.
Keying out manipulations has seen Tarkan lose its second place rating. Radyo Viva's play share, which had previously placed "Cuppa" top of its chart, has been dropped, although Tarkan has topped Show Radyo's playlist this week and Powerturk's chart last week.
Yo-yoing "Cuppa" has yet to slay the charts, but meanwhile the singer's Harbiye September shows, as expected, are being hailed as a PR coup.
Currently enjoying the spotlight of the open air arena, with media rumours that three more dates have been reserved, the singer's profile has been given a much needed boost as the fourth most talked about celebrity in August.
On iTunes downloads and Apple streaming "Cuppa" saw a temporary rise in the charts, although it dropped two places in total digital sales from last week.
Cautious fans are hoping this will translate into official chart success for "Cuppa" finally, months after its release.
