Ed Sheeran is the undisputed king of Spotify. There's no point in fighting it as the English singer and songwriter's "Shape of You" tops the streaming service's list of most valuable and most streamed songs. But, at least Ben&Ben comes close—sort of.

A new study by Australian finance site S Money reveals the most-streamed songs by artists of every country. The report calculates the most valuable songs on Spotify by taking the earnings of different artists on the platform and most-streamed songs in every country.

It found that Ed Sheeran's "Shape of You" earned over $13 million. While Post Malone's "Rockstar" took second by earning over $10.4 million. The third song was Tones and I's "Dance Monkey" which netted over $10.2 million.

Interestingly, Filipino band Ben&Ben's made the top 10 of the most-streamed songs in every country in the study. Landing at sixth place, "Kathang Isip" reportedly had 130,489,905 streams in the Philippines. As for earnings, according to the study's estimate, the song made $639,400 (approximately P30.8 million). Keep in mind though that's S Money's estimate.
