UPDATE: Week 39 chart update >>

Tarkan's award-winning second video single release "Beni Çok Sev" - which courted controversy over plagiarism claims - is in tenth place according to official Turkish airplay, while it's out of the top ten of alternative monitor Telifmetre endorsed figures in the 10th week of 2018.

"Beni Çok Sev" has also dropped out of the Pop Liste top ten - music station Kral Pop's compliation chart for airplay and sales, but shows in the breakdown at number seven for national airplay. On Kral Pop's own weekly charts, "Beni Çok Sev" is down at number eight for TV and at number ten on its radio figures.

On PowerTürk, a rival national radio station, its TV Pop 40 chart sees Tarkan down at number 17 from last week, while its Pop 40 chart places Tarkan in 24th place. On PowerTürk's Pop 10 the listing remains unchanged, with Tarkan in first place.

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 49m 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 84m organic hits on Tarkan's Youtube channel without a music video - currently his channel's most highest viewed track.

Following a three month domination of the charts last summer, Tarkan's first digital drop "Yolla" is still showing in Kral Pop's breakdown of its compilation chart Pop Liste, with "Yolla" up at number five for campus radio airplay.

The music video to "Yolla" has accumulated over a total of 260m views. The video on music channel NetD has alone surpassed 224m views, making Tarkan the first Turkish male artist on its YouTube channel to achieve the 200m milestone.
