Ariana Grande and Nathan Sykes reportedly recorded a new duet together. Fans can hear the ex-couple sing together again in January 2016.
JustJaredJr revealed that Grande and Sykes used to date in 2013. They were only together for four months.
Recently, the two announced that they recorded a duet version of Sykes’ song, “Over and Over Again.”

“I have some news ... There's another version of #OverAndOverAgain with a very special feature,” Sykes posted on Twitter.
“So you know I said January was going to be an interesting month ...” Sykes tweeted.
Digital Spy wrote that “Over and Over Again” initially released as a solo. It is Sykes’ newest single, which peaked at No. 8 in the UK charts. Ariana’s vocals will be introduced for the duet version, which will launch on Jan. 15, 2016.
In April 2015, Sykes told MTV about the song and described it as a nice love ballad. He said that since most songs focused on near-relationships and breakups, it would be ideal to wrote a sweet love song.
“It made me feel a bit nauseas reading the lyrics, I was in a sappy mood,” he shared when he wrote the song in Los Angeles.
MTV cited that the Grande and Sykes also collaborated on the song “Almost Is Never Enough” before they started dating. Apparently, the former lovers are still very friendly despite their breakup, which may delight many of their fans.
