The out-of-key chord happens a lot. Don't forget that in the descending A melodic minor you use a G natural, not a sharp.
I think you got it backward. In natural A minor, you use G natural and G# in melodic minor. No?

Stay with me on this one -

In A Natural minor - yes, it's a G Natural both ways.

In A Harmonic minor, it's G# both ways.

In A Melodic minor, it's G# going up and G Natural going down - easier to sing, apparently
