The chorus vocal melody to FourFiveSeconds (released January 24, 2015) by Rihanna, Kanye West, and Sir Paul McCartney is very similar to the chorus vocal melody to the Jonas Brothers' single Burnin' Up (released June 19, 2008). Both songs are in the key of D major, and both melodies have a rhythm featuring two quarter notes followed by five eighth notes (one-two three-and-four-and *rest* and). Compare the chorus lines: "Four Five Seconds from wildin' | And we got three more days 'til Friday," with "slipping into the lava | And I'm tryin' to keep from going under."

Taylor Swift’s Style (released February 9, 2015) is reminiscent of several songs including:

Jealous by Nick Jonas (released September 8, 2014, which itself emulates Prince's Little Red Corvette and Miguel’s Adorn; nevermind that Adorn, released August 7, 2012, emulates Marvin Gaye’s Sexual Healing). Style has the same key (B minor/D), similar chord progression, tempo (95 bpm vs 93 bpm), and production as Jealous.
Style (:19) VS Jealous (:10)
Style
Key: B minor/D major
Chord Progression (Verse): B minor, G (i, VI OR vi, IV)
Jealous
Key: B minor/D major
Chord Progression (Verse): A, B minor, G (VII, i, VI ORV, vi, IV)


Forever in Blue Jeans (:21) by Neil Diamond. Style has a similar verse vocal melody/rhythm.


So Into You (:47) by the Atlanta Rhythm Section. Style has a similar verse chord progression.


Stand Back (:19) by Stevie Nicks (penned by Prince). Similar chorus production and progression. SEE Gold Digger note as well.


Madonna’s Get Into The Groove (:08). Similar chorus chord progression.


Shame (:05) by Evelyn “Champagne” King. Similar verse chord progression.


Stylo (1:16) by Gorillaz


Eminence Front (:48) by the Who


Grease Is The Word by Frankie Valli (:53)


Gold Digger by Kanye West ft. Jamie Foxx - Taylor’s “take me home” line (3:11) has a melody similar to Gold Digger’s Ray Charles sample from I Got A Woman: “She gives me money, when I’m in need.” Taylor's line may have also been inspired by Stevie Nick’s own “take me home” tag line in Stand Back (4:03).


Love Me Harder (:31) by Ariana Grande

Honorable Mention:
Miami Vice Theme Song (Jan Hammer)

The verse vocal melody to Selena Gomez's The Heart Wants What it Wants (released November 6, 2014) is reminiscent of Jeannie (released 1967), the instrumental theme song to Screen Gems hit TV series "I Dream of Jeannie," which starred Barbara Eden and Larry Hagman. Compare the dotted eighth note rhythm of Selena's vocal lines: "[...] something I can't compare to/Nothing I've ev-er known I'm," with the jazzy dotted quarter note melody of Jeannie.

The Heart Wants What It Wants (:58) VS Jeannie (:04)
