Slowly, the song introduces a light piano melody that sets the whole mood of the video. At this point, you can just relax and shut out any distractions.
Producing an old yet memorable sound, "Almost is Never Enough" suits Ariana Grande's classic voice perfectly. The lyrics also build up as it hits the relaxing chorus; it defines a relationship that can't be denied, an "almost" kind of feeling that is so close to being in love that ifs and buts would disappear. After the first chorus, Nathan Sykes of The Wanted comes in with a deep and strong voice, adding an R&B feel to the song. His solo parts really bring out his talent, but when they both sing and harmonize, it's kind of magical—I'm not kidding. This is the type of song you can slow dance to at prom or on really special occasions (maybe your debut?). Anything less will just spoil it.
