Quiz Description

Each question asks you to name a single on the U.S. Billboard Hot 100 where at least one of the artists (either the primary artist of the featured artist, as noted in the question) was from a country not known for producing a lot of hitmakers. I tried to identify the biggest hit from each of the countries listed, but I cannot guarantee that I didn't miss any bigger hits. Enjoy!
