Ariana Grande and Nathan Sykes are taking their chemistry from the studio to the streets! The Victorious actress, 20, and the Wanted singer, 20 -- who just released a duet, "Almost Is Never Enough," for the movie The Mortal Instruments: City of Bones -- are dating, sources confirm to Us Weekly.

"It's very, very new," one insider tells Us of the romance, noting that Grande and Sykes have met several times but started dating only recently. Adds another source: "Nate sends her flowers everyday."

Grande -- known to many fans as Cat Valentine on Nickelodeon's Victorious, iCarly, and Sam & Cat -- was most recently linked to YouTube star Jai Brooks of the Janoskians. They split in February but reunited shortly thereafter, only to break up again this summer. She also made headlines earlier this month when she posted a photo of Justin Bieber kissing her cheek.

Bieber, though, is just a pal. "Everyone, girls are allowed to be friends with guys," she tweeted to her 8.7 million followers when Beliebers started freaking out over the pic. "I'm a lady. Chill out."

Her relationship with Sykes is a different story. Speaking about the Wanted singer in an interview with MTV News recently, Grande couldn't help but gush about how great it was to work with him on "Almost Is Never Enough," which will appear on her upcoming album Yours Truly.

"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," she said. "I saw him perform live on one of the radio shows that we were at together, and I was like, 'Damn, he can sing.' 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."
