LISTEN: Ariana Grande Duets With Ex-Boyfriend Nathan Sykes
The duo, who briefly dated two years ago, are joining forces on a new track called “Over and Over Again.” Originally a solo song by Sykes, who is a former member of the boy band The Wanted, the new version is set to be released Jan. 15.
Grande, 22, teased the tune on her Instagram.
Grande and Sykes, 22, dated in 2013 after collaborating on a song called “Almost Is Never Enough” for The Mortal Instruments: City of Bones soundtrack. The couple parted ways due to their busy schedules.
“We split because of the long-distance thing,” Sykes told The Sun in 2015. “There was that amazing moment at the start of the relationship where we both convinced ourselves, ‘Yeah, long distance won’t matter. It will be fine.’ But it was impossible.”
Currently, Grande is dating backup dancer Ricky Alvarez.
