Pentatonix's Can't Sleep Love (released September 4, 2015, as the lead single from their fourth studio album), seems to borrow it groove, tempo, and progression from Lionel Richie's Pop/Soul classic Love Will Conquer All (released July 15, 1986). While the songs are in keys a whole step apart (CSL in G, and LWCA in F), Can't Sleep Love hews closely to Love Will Conquer All's progression (CSL simply substitutes a two minor seventh chord for Richie's four major seventh). In addition, the vocal melody to Can't Sleep Love's later verses (around 1:35, beginning with the line "Kissing in the moonlight") echo Shaggy's Boombastic (:23) (released June 5, 1995).
