"Hangi şarkıcıları seviyorsunuz? Sibel´in hangi şarkısını seviyorsunuz?"

These are more suitable than the others.

I´m having trouble understanding why şarkıcıları, it this means "the songs"?And would şarkısını be literally like "the her songs"?

Quoting denizli

I´m having trouble understanding why şarkıcıları, it this means "the songs"?And would şarkısını be literally like "the her songs"?

 

I´ll try to break it down to hopefully help you.

Hangi şarkıcıları seviyorsunuz? 

şarkı = song

şarkı = singer 

şarkıcılar = singers (I think you may have misunderstood this word)

/i sevmek (verb) uses an accusative suffix to identify the object of the sentence

şarkıcıları seviyorsunuz = you love the singers

Hangi şarkıcıları seviyorsunuz? = Which singers do you love?

Sibel´in hangi şarkısını seviyorsunuz?

(Which Sibel song do you love? Which of Sibel´s songs do you love?)

Sibel = a famous singer in Turkey

Sibel´in = Sibel´s

Sibel´in şarkı = Sibel´s song (the (s)i suffix shows it is a song that is possessed or owned by someone, in this case, Sibel. The letter ´s´ is a buffer letter in this construction.

again, the verb sevmek requires an accusative suffix on the object.

the object is Sibel´s song

Sibel´in şarkısı + n (second buffer letter) + ı (accusative suffix) =

Sibel´in şarkısını seviyorsunuz = you love Sibel´s song(s)

So you could translate şarkısını as the song(s) of him/her
