The first line of the R Kelly tune is almost identical melodically and lyrically to the first line of the chorus of the Biffy Clyro tune. It's rare that a similarity like this exists both with the melody and lyrics.
Compare the vocal melody that Chris Martin sings (starting with the line "If we've only got this life") in the outro of Adventure of a Lifetime (released November 6, 2015) with the guitar/vocal melody of Neil Young's Like a Hurricane (released August 8, 1977).

Ryan Adams' 2015 Grammy-nominated song Gimme Something Good (released July 1, 2014) from his eponymous 14th album, bears resemblance to several past rock/pop hits. In particular, the chorus vocal melody for GSG (key: B minor/D major) is similar to the chorus vocal melody for Poco's easy-listening staple Heart of the Night (released March 1979; key: Bb minor/C# major).

Ryan Adams' 2015 Grammy-nominated song Gimme Something Good (released July 1, 2014) from his eponymous 14th album, bears resemblance to several past rock/pop hits, including Couldn't Get It Right (Climax Blues Band), Twilight Zone (Golden Earring), Lunatic Fringe (Red Rider), My Favorite Mistake (Sheryl Crow), I Got A Line On You (Spirit), and more (noted below). While in a different key, GSG's verse vocal melody, rhythm, and bass part also resembles Aretha Franklin's R&B classic Chain of Fools (released November 1967; and written by Don Covay). Finally, the vocal melody to GSG's chorus is similar to the vocal line in Eddie Money's Take Me Home Tonight, when Money sings "Just like Ronnie Sang," as well as to the chorus of Poco's Heart of the Night.

The chorus to French DJ/producer David Guetta's single Dangerous featuring Sam Martin on vocals (released October 6, 2014) seems to have been inspired by the chorus to Nirvana's grunge anthem Smells Like Teen Spirit (released September 10, 1991). Both the chorus chord progression and chorus vocal melody to Dangerous is similar to those found in SLTS. There is also some lyrical similarity. Compare the lines, Dangerous: "I don't know where the lights are taking us, but something in the night is dangerous," with SLTS's line "Let me out now, this is dangerous/Here we are now entertain us."
The chorus vocal melody and chord progression for Hozier's Take Me To Church (released September 16, 2013) are similar to the chorus vocal melody and chord progression for Joe Cocker's signature 1974 hit You Are So Beautiful (written by Billy Preston, Bruce Fisher, and an uncredited Dennis Wilson of the Beach Boys). Compare the lines TMTC: "I'll worship like a dog at the shrine of your life," and YASB: "You're everything I've hoped for." Since C# major 7 contains an F minor chord, the C#M-C7 chord progression in You Are So Beautiful's chorus is essentially the same as Take Me To Church's Emin-B7, only a half-step higher (i.e. Fmin-C7). Take Me To Church's descending chromatic guitar riff is also identical to one found in Pink Floyd's Have a Cigar.
