Tarkan's "Cuppa" Crawls the Charts
Entering the official Turkish airplay chart in its 30th week as the third highest entry, the track has been unable to reach a top three position for two weeks running.
The top position has been held by Derya Uluğ's "Okyanus" track for the past two weeks, with over 40 million in YouTube views and taking the major share of radio airplay.
In its 32nd week, the official airplay chart is composed exclusively of Turkish language singles in Turkey and was first issued by Nielsen Music Control. Now monitored by VY Media under the name of MusicTopTR, it tweets the top three tracks every Friday.
Tarkan's 2016 summer release brought with it a lot of social media shade, and the club-inspired pop song has struggled to find a top position in the Turkish charts since causing a stir on its digital drop.
Although it's viral capability meant that the track temporarily shot to number 1 in certain digital charts, it wasn't able to generate sufficient interest to dent the official airplay listing since its release.
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. Views have steadily increased attracting over 5 million views in three weeks - the last three million in this past week alone.
