Tarkan Top for Second Week

Posted by Steffan Matrak from Moscow, Russia

In the 30th week of Tarkan's 2017 album 10's release, the album remains at number three of the highest selling albums across D&R stores.

Tarkan has released two video singles in that time, with both reaching the top of domestic airplay.

Tarkan's award-winning second video single release "Beni Çok Sev" remains at number one in the 2nd week of 2018 according to official Turkish airplay, while it drops to second place in alternative monitor Telifmetre figures.

In Pop Liste, music station Kral Pop's compliation chart for airplay and sales, Tarkan's "Beni Çok Sev" has dropped to number ten. In the breakdown, it's placed at number four for national airplay and number seven for digital sales.

On Kral Pop's own weekly charts, "Beni Çok Sev" is at number two for TV and number four on its radio figures. On its non-pop station, Kral FM, Tarkan is at number three.

On PowerTürk, a rival national radio station, its TV 40 pop chart sees Tarkan up at number one from fifth position, while it also jumps to number one from fifth place on its radio Pop 40 from last week. On PowerTürk's Pop 10 the listing remains unchanged, with Tarkan at number one.

Meanwhile, the music video to "Beni Çok Sev" - which was dropped exclusively to streaming site fizy for two weeks - has collected over a total of 25m views on YouTube.

The song has been a fan favourite since 10's release, appearing in the music charts alongside "Yolla" and has hit over 82m organic hits on Tarkan's Youtube channel without a music video - his most highest viewed video on his channel so far.

Following a three month domination of the charts last summer, Tarkan's first digital drop "Yolla" is still showing in some charts.

In Kral Pop's breakdown of its compilation chart Pop Liste, "Yolla" drops in the streaming chart at number ten, while the track is at number five for campus radio airplay.

On PowerTürk's TV 40 pop chart "Yolla" remains unmoved at number 33, while on its radio Pop 40 it's down at at number 29.

The music video to "Yolla" has accumulated over a total of 236m views. The video on music channel NetD has alone surpassed 200m views, making Tarkan the first Turkish male artist on its YouTube channel to achieve the milestone.
