The singer, who recently underwent surgery on his vocal chords, recorded the duet Almost Is Never Enough with the Nickelodeon star which is now set to feature on The Mortal Instruments: City of Bones soundtrack.
Sykes told MTV News US: "This would have been the first time I've recorded since my surgery."
"I was really nervous. I've never been so nervous for a session, and went in and [did] what I like to think is quite possibly the best vocal I've ever recorded. I'm really proud of it."
The 20-year-old also gushed over Grande's singing ability, calling her the "best female vocalist" out right now.
Nathan continued: "Honestly, I couldn't ask to work with a more talented vocalist than Ariana.
"I have so much respect for what she's just about to do, and I think it's a very exciting time for both myself and Ariana for slightly different reasons. I'm just excited I got my voice back. She's about to go on this quite amazing journey."
The pair just finished shooting a music video for the track, and Nathan even gave fans a bit of an idea of what they can expect.
He added: "The video's a really cool video. It was shot and recorded in the studio. I get to get on the piano at some points. It shows a really fun day recording the track."
