Additional notes/observations: 

The chorus vocal melody to Wiz Khalifa's See You Again (released March 17, 2015), which features Charile Puth, is similar to the verse vocal melody to Bonnie Raitt's signature ballad I Can't Make You Love Me (released October 21, 1991, and written by Mike Reid and Allen Shamblin). Both songs are in the key of Bb major, and have similar progressions and diatonic melodies that begin on the downbeat with the sixth degree of the root scale, followed by the fifth degree, and descending in the second phrase (SEE below).
