The pre-chorus vocal melody to Tori Kelly's Nobody Love (released June 23, 2015) is very similar to the chorus vocal melody to Charles & Eddie's Would I Lie To You? (released August 4, 1992). Compare the vocal lines, Nobody Love: "I should be more cynical [...]" and Would I Lie To You?: "Look into my eyes, can't you see them open wide." While Nobody Love is in the key of E major, and WILTY is in the key of D major, both melodies feature ascending diatonic eighth notes that repeat twice each step (with one exception, WILTY plays the third step only once).

Nobody Love (:29) VS Would I Lie To You? (:23)

Honorable mention:
Hit Me With Your Best Shot (Pat Benatar) - identical verse chord progression
These Words (Natasha Bedingfield) - similar verse
No One (Alicia Keys) - similar verse
One Less Problem - Ariana Grande - similar chorus, SEE Whisper Song (Yin Yang Twins)

Additional notes/observations: 

Walk the Moon's Shut Up and Dance (released September 10, 2014) borrows elements from several 80s hits including:

U2's Where The Streets Have No Name (released August 4, 1987) i.e. the Edge's delay-effected guitar arpeggios and muted sixteenth notes over Larry Mullen Jr.'s four-on-the-floor kick drum;

Aerosmith's Angel (released 1988) i.e. bridge vocal melody and chord structure;

The Cars' Magic (May 7, 1984) i.e. drum sounds and guitar power chords;

Pat Benatar's Hit Me with Your Best Shot (released September 15, 1980) and Scandal's The Warrior (released August 1984) i.e. familiar I-IV-vi-V chorus chord progression also heard in Kesha's Die Young, Fine Young Cannibals' She Drives Me Crazy, and One Direction's What Makes You Beautiful;

As well as more contemporary fare like
The Killer's Mr. Brightside (released September 29, 2003) i.e. same I-IV-vi-V progression in the same key, and Coldplay's Every Teardrop Is a Waterfall (released June 3, 2011) i.e. verse melody.

Additional notes/observations: 

The b-section vocal melody to Olly Murs' Up featuring Demi Lovato (released December 1, 2014) is very similar to the b-section vocal melody to Bruce Springsteen's Oscar- and multi-Grammy-winning song Streets of Philadelphia (released February 2, 1994) from the Philadelphia soundtrack. Compare Up's vocal "Yeah, Yeah, Yeah, Yeah, Yeah" with Philadelphia's vocal "La, La, La, La, La". While in different keys, both melodies share the same quarter-note triplet rhythm (rest-trip-let, two-trip-let), over the same (relative) chord progression. A similar rhythm can be found in the intro to Steely Dan's Kid Charlemagne

Up (2:49) VS Philadelphia (1:30)
