  The 62nd Grammy Awards will take place on Sunday, January 26,
  2020.
  
  Insider ranked the artists nominated in the "big four"
  categories - record of the year, album of the year, song of the
  year, and best new artist - by streaming numbers from Spotify's
  Top 200 chart in 2019.
  
  Post Malone took the top spot with 2,258,453,158 streams.
  
  Some artists did not crack the chart and were therefore not
  ranked, including album of the year nominee Bon Iver.

  The 2020
  Grammy Awards will 
  honor a wide array of artists, but a select 19 will face off
  in the ceremony's "big four" categories. 

  As expected, anticipation is already running high for those
  prestigious awards - record of the year, album of the year, song
  of the year, and best new artist - to be handed out at the 62nd
  annual ceremony, which will air live from Los Angeles' Staples
  Center on January 26, 2020 at 8 p.m. ET on CBS.

  Insider scoured Spotify's weekly
  list of top 200 songs to find out which of this year's "big
  four" nominees had the most streams in 2019. They're ranked below
  in descending order.

  Important to note: Four best new artist nominees (Yola, Tanya
  Tucker, Black Pumas, and Tank and the Bangles), as well as album
  of the year nominee Bon Iver, didn't break into Spotify's Top 200
  chart last year, and were therefore not included in this ranking.
