A new study by Australian finance blog S-Money has revealed the most valuable songs on Spotify by country.

Some of the usual suspects like Ed Sheeran and Drake are featured of course, taking the cake in the United Kingdom and Canada, respectively. The United States' most valuable song comes courtesy of Post Malone, whose influential "Rockstar" is the clear-cut winner.

Late EDM legend Avicii's "Wake Me Up" is Sweden's most-streamed song worldwide, worth well over $6 million from its staggering 1.25 billion streams to date. Alan Walker's "Faded" has become Norway's most popular export, earning the DJ over $6.5 million off of nearly 1.4 billion streams.
