Additional notes/observations: 

The chorus to Jamaican singer OMI's hit Cheerleader (originally released in 2012; remix released May 19, 2014) is reminiscent of the chorus to Scottish alternative band The Trash Can Sinatra's tune Only Tongue Can Tell (released 1990). Similarities includes: key (both in E major), tempo/groove, chord progression (variations on a simple I-IV-V), and vocal melody. Cheerleader has also been compared to Paul Simon's hit You Can Call Me Al (released September 5, 1986).

Additional notes/observations: 

The chorus vocal melody to Texas-born singer-songwriter Megan Nicole's track Fun (released October 14, 2014) is similar rhythmically to the chorus vocal melody to 90's R&B artists Tony! Toni! Tone's If I Had No Loot (released June 1, 1993). While Fun and If I Had No Loot are in completely different keys and have different melodic contours, both chorus melodies feature similar "New Jack Swing" rhythms, which emphasize the first two quarter notes of the beat, and both songs have the same exact tempo (108 bpm). Fun is also reminiscent of Sugarland's All I Want to Do, the Rolling Stones' Tumbling Dice, and King Floyd's Groove Me (released 1971).
