Back together again? More than two years after they called it quits on their relationship, Ariana Grande and Nathan Sykes have reunited on a romantic new duet of his hit single ‘Over And Over Again.’ Does this mean things are officially back on between the two?
Nariana fans rejoice — Ariana Grande, 22, and Nathan Sykes, 22, are making sweet, sweet music together again! The duo, who briefly dated back in 2013, are joining forces on an emotional new track entitled “Over and Over Again.” The song is super romantic and filled with sappy lyrics like “I’ll keep you safe and hold you forever,” so naturally we have to wonder: Are they planning on getting back together?
This is so exciting! Much to our collective delight, it appears these exes are still A-OK with each other — so much so, in fact, that they’ve decided to team up on a hot new track! After first teasing the “very special” duet on Twitter on Jan. 8, Nathan officially confirmed the exciting news to fans on Jan. 11 when he tweeted a snippet of the song featuring the “One Less Problem” singer herself. Not to be outdone, Ariana quickly followed suit, posting her own pink-themed teaser video, along with the caption, “#OverAndOverAgain Jan. 15.”
So what does this mean for the former couple’s relationship? Well, Ariana definitely had fans guessing when she took to Twitter on Jan. 10 — just one day before officially announcing the song — to share a cryptic message featuring some of the track’s more heartfelt lyrics. “From the heat of night/to the break of day/I’ll keep you safe & hold you for forever #OverAndOverAgain,” she tweeted. Hmmm, suspicious, no?

Still, it seems unlikely that the reunion is anything more than a chance for the two to show off their amazing pipes together, as Ariana is still in a relationship with her backup dancer Ricky Alvarez. Even so, we can’t help reminisce about what happened the last time Ariana and Nathan hit the studio together.
As any Nariana fan will tell you, the pop singers first started dating in 2013 after collaborating on a song called “Almost Is Never Enough” for The Mortal Instruments: City of Bones soundtrack. The two went on to date for four months before parting ways due to their busy schedules. “We split because of the long-distance thing,” Nathan 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.” Who knows, perhaps this new love ballad will convince them to give their love another try. After all, they make one insanely cute couple, no?
