Dudu is a 2003 studio album by Tarkan. This was his first album to be released through his own record label, HITT Music. It holds five songs and five remixes. The album was published in Europe and Asia. The sales of the album exceeded 4.1 million copies worldwide, of which over 2.5 million were sold in Turkey alone. To support the album, beginning in November 2003 Tarkan gave solo performances in Turkey and other countries. In 2004 as part of Dudu World tour Tarkan visited Austria, Germany, France, USA, Ukraine, Russia, Finland, the Netherlands, Azerbaijan and Kazakhstan.
Tarkan's 2003 musical offering was his first album to be released under his own label HITT Music and the first Tarkan album to be packaged in a Digipak. Technically it could be classed as an EP release with only five edits and five remixes, but it is generally viewed as an album as its track length is over 35 minutes. Dudu was the first hybrid album of its kind in Turkey to sell over 1,000,000 copies. Tarkan once again collaborated with singer-songwriter Nazan Öncel for this album after a successful collaboration on his Karma album. - courtesy of Ali Yildirim
