Second Listen: ""Almost is Never Enough" (Ariana Grande ft. Nathan Sykes)

Was listening to Ariana Grande's Yours Truly earlier today and couldn't stop repeating her duet with The Wanted's Nathan Sykes on "Almost Is Never Enough." While it was semi released as the second single off of the YA film soundtrack for The Mortal Instruments: City of Bones, after the film bombed at the box office, the soundtrack and "Almost Is Never Enough" never really got much more of a push.

While Ariana is slated to release her sophomore album and followup to Yours Truly, My Everything this Tuesday, I thought it would be nice to revisit this slept on joint from the now bonafide superstar.

For me, "Almost Is Never Enough" is a beautiful duet between then two rising stars and is a bit reminiscent of a Mariah Carey/ Boyz II Men collaboration in my opinion. Though the song is a bit mature in arrangement for the two young singers in my opinion, Ariana continues to prove that her 90s-flavored R&B songs are winners both on the charts and vocally.

With that said, revisit Ariana's duet with Nathan Sykes below on "Almost Is Never Enough" and Enjoy!
