It was released on August 19, 2013.
"Almost Is Never Enough" was written by Grande, Harmony Samuels, Carmen Reece, Al Sherrod Lambert, Olaniyi-Akinpelu, and its producer, Moses Samuels. Grande originally recorded "Almost Is Never Enough" as a solo ballad for her album. Roughly a week later, she received an email from her manager Scooter Braun, who also manages the English boy band The Wanted. In the email was a new version of the song that had Nathan Sykes's vocal added to it. Grande loved the new version and decided to keep it for her album. Especially at 4:39 when Nathan sings that riff. First time she heard it she spent the whole day trying to sing it.
