Release Notes
This is Tarkan's second album. It marked the successful partnership between Tarkan and female singer/songwriter Sezen Aksu. On its release, it sold just under half a million copies (450,000 units) in its first 10 days on the shelves. It eventually sold over an estimated 2 million copies domestically. His sophomore outing also reached sales of over 750,000 in Europe, a first-ever feat for a Turkish performer.

Some musical commentators attributed the album's success to a pre-launch campaign, which included half-naked photos of the singer grabbing his private parts. The resulting "Tarkan-mania" that witnessed girls tear off their clothes at his concerts heralded in a new phenomenon - that of the Turkish pop idol.

A rare promotional CD single with three tracks from this album was released in Germany. Released in 1995, Hepsi Senin Mi held the title track plus "Bekle" and "Kış Güneşi".

The third track on the album "Şeytan Azapta" was remixed when its music video was released. This remixed version was exclusive to the video and was never published on this or any following release.

Music Videos were filmed for tracks -

  • Hepsi Senin Mi?; Dir: Hazım Başaran (Due to re-edits there are two versions to Başaran's video. The song itself was to be later renamed "Şikidim" for the European market)
  • Unutmamalı; Dir: Hazım Başaran
  • Şeytan Azapta; Dir: Şule Bekiroğlu (Usually edited to cut out the scene where Tarkan is being stripped on stage)
  • Dön Bebeğim; Dir: Abdullah Oğuz (Usually edited due to its sexy scenes)
  • Kış Güneşi; Dir: Umur Turagay

Others filmed were -
  • Bekle (Rarely seen music video filmed when Tarkan was in Singapore for a concert.)
  • Gül Döktüm Yollarına (There are two versions. One was filmed for a new year show on TV, is not an official video and therefore difficult to find on the Net. The second was filmed during Tarkan's visit to Singapore.)

Music videos filmed to songs on this album after they were re-released in the Tarkan compilation album -
