LISTEN: Nathan Sykes’ “Over and Over Again” Single Featuring Ex-Girlfriend Ariana Grande
Nathan Sykes‘ solo career just got a MAJOR boost. The 22-year-old British singer, formerly of The Wanted, has been hard at work, pumping out music like nobody’s business throughout the course of the past year. In March 2015, he dropped “More Than You’ll Ever Know,” which sounded like something Justin Timberlake would totally take pride in. Then there was last spring’s “Kiss Me Quick,” which peaked at number 14 on the UK Singles Chart and number 19 on the Scottish Singles Chart. Then there’s his most recent single, “Over and Over Again,” which peaked at number 8 on the UK Singles Chart. Not bad, not bad… but not incredible either. But, perhaps, his latest move will push it over the edge.
Recently, we learned that he was teaming up with his “Almost is Never Enough” duet partner/ex-girlfriend, megastar Ariana Grande, for an updated rendition of the single. They both more than hinted at the news on their individual Twitter accounts:
I have some news … There's another version of #OverAndOverAgain with a very special feature

"from the heat of night to the break of day I'll keep you safe & hold you forever.." #OverAndOverAgain
— Ariana Grande (@ArianaGrande) January 10, 2016
While this may not prove that Nariana is back on, like some shippers may hope, it does prove that they’re pretty much the friendliest exes ever, behind Demi Lovato and Joe Jonas who even performed on stage together post-split.

We’ll never forget this moment // It will stay brand new // ’cause I’ll love you over and over again
