Tarkan Top for 5th Week

Posted by Steffan Matrak from Moscow, Russia

Tarkan's first digital single from 10 remains in top position in the official Turkish airplay chart's 29th week, while it continues to dominate Turkish streaming sites Türk Telekom Müzik and fizy.

Music station Kral's top spot artist Hande Yener has dropped out of the top three for official airplay this week, further widening the discrepancies between the station's listing and independent monitors.

And seeing a spike in viewing figures, Tarkan's music video to "Yolla" has risen in YouTube's trending list for Turkey, after a dip last week.

In other news released today, a track from his 2017 album which has seen a lot of interest, and is currently trending second on YouTube, fan favourite and slow ballad "Beni Çok Sev" has seen claims of copyright against it dismissed.

The claim in the media was publicly disputed by the lyricist of the song, and investigations by official monitors have upheld that there is no question of plagiarism.
