Listening to Ariana Grande‘s new single “Baby I” on repeat? Well, press the pause button for a minute (I know, it’s hard!) because the 19-year-old pop princess has another glorious anthem to feast your ears on. “Almost Is Never Enough” is a soulful duet with The Wanted‘s Nathan Sykes and represents a massive step away from the Mariah Carey-lite of the teen diva’s first two singles.
The pretty piano ballad wouldn’t sound out of place on an Alicia Keys album. The simple production is timeless and showcases Ariana’s powerful pipes superbly. And who knew Nathan could sing like that? “Almost Is Never Enough” is a revelation all around and promises very good things for the Instagram addict‘s debut album. Listen to a snippet of the duet after the jump.
