Nickelodeon star Ariana Grande has heaped praise on home-grown lad The Wanted[/uuid], saying the star "sang the hell out of" their new duet!
Their track Almost Is Never Enough is set to feature in the upcoming film The Mortal Instruments: City of Bones, and Ariana sat down with MTV News US recently to discuss how the duet came about.
She said: "I'm really excited by it. And, honestly, I didn't know it was going to be a duet and [my manager] Scooter [Braun] just said 'Check your email.'"
"Nathan just sang the hell out of it. I thought it was Brian McKnight. I'm like 'Who is this?' Honestly I wasn't expecting it. I didn't know he had that in him.
Ariana continued: "I saw him perform live on one of the radio shows that we were at together and I was like, 'Damn he can sing.'"
The tune will feature alongside tracks by a host of big names including Demi Lovato, Jessie J, Colbie Caillat and AFI.
She said of the duet: "This song I think will pleasantly surprise a lot of people. It's very beautiful and very emotional and I love, love, love what Nathan did to it. It was a great, great, great surprise."
