The Wanted’s Nathan Sykes Talks Ariana Grande Romance + Solo Project Rumors
Nathan Sykes of the Wanted is basically a lovesick puppy around Ariana Grande, and it may be the cutest thing ever. The ‘Almost Is Never Enough’ duet partners are both speaking out on their budding romance — and they both admit that their love is affecting their songwriting!
Sykes revealed to MTV Newsthat he and Grande became official in the most magical place on Earth. “Basically we went out to Disneyland and had a great day. And we always said leading up to that when there was something official to announce and that’s exactly when we announced it and everyone was like, ‘
When pressed for more details, Sykes gushed, “It’s going very well. I’m very, very happy and she’s amazing. So yeah, I’m very lucky.” Sykes also admitted he’d love to write more songs with Grande.
And Grande agrees! She told Notion magazine (via MTV), “I’m the happiest I’ve ever been and I’m learning a lot of lessons from this relationship. I think that’s beautiful and it’s something that should be expressed. You best believe I’m going to be writing about him.”
The pair have as much chemistry in real life as they do onstage. “We forget there’s an audience when we’re on stage together,” Sykes said. Cute!
Though Sykes isn’t flying solo in his personal life, rumors have sprouted that he’s looking to do just that in his professional life. Is he really splitting from the Wanted to do the solo route? Nope! He told the Daily Star, “I don’t know where that’s come from, but between having a throat operation, touring and making the new album, where would I even find the time?”
