Their collaboration called ‘Over and Over Again’ was originally a solo single released by Sykes in October for his upcoming album.
Ariana Grande and Nathan Sykes prove that exes can still be good friends, and even business partners. More than a year after their short-lived romance, the former couple reunited for a new version of “Over and Over Again” which they teased on Monday, January 11 through their respective social media accounts.
The song was originally released back in October as a solo single to be included on Sykes’ upcoming album. Late last week, the former The Wanted member revealed on Twitter that he had reworked the tune with “a very special feature.”
So you know I said January was going to be an interesting month …

On Monday, Grande confirmed that she’s the guest Sykes was talking about. ” ‘From the heat of night to the break of day. I’ll keep you safe & hold you forever..’ #OverAndOverAgain,” she tweeted some lyrics before sharing a preview of the revamped version featuring her vocals.
