Additional notes/observations: 

Elements of Green Light (released March 2, 2017), the lead single from New Zealand sensation Lorde's second album, are reminiscent of Icona Pop's chart-topper and advertising staple I Love It (released May 9, 2012), Cold War Kids' First (release February 15, 2017), and Live's Lightning Crashes (released September 24, 1994‎). The progression (4-1-5 in the key of D major) is also similar to progressions in One Direction's Best Song Ever (4-1-5 in the key of C# major), and Judas Priest's You've Got Another Thing Coming (4-1-5 in the key of B major), and Len's Steal My Sunshine (4-1-5 in the key of E major).

Additional notes/observations: 

The intro to Ed Sheeran's Shape of You (released January 6, 2017) is very similar to the intro to Sia's Cheap Thrills (released February 11, 2016). Both feature a marimba-sounding synth playing staccato quarter note triplets for each chord. In terms of chord structure, Shape of You (in the key of E) follows a vi-ii-IV-V (or minor 6, minor 2, 4, 5) progression, while Cheap Thrills (in the key of A) follows a vi-IV-I-V (or minor 6, 4, 1, 5) progression. Shape of You is also slightly reminiscent of TLC's No Scrubs (released January 23, 1999), which is in the key of B (really G# harmonic minor), and follows a ii-vi-V/vi-vi (or minor 2, minor 6, dominant chord of the 6, minor 6). In particular, the scansion of the verse vocal melody is similar. [h/t to A. Zucker for suggesting this one!]

Shape of You (:00) VS Cheap Thrills (:00)

Shape of You (:10) VS No Scrubs (TLC) (:18)

The chorus to the Weeknd's Can't Feel My Face (released June 8, 2015) is oddly reminiscent of Hall and Oates' last Billboard Hot 100 number one single, Out of Touch (released October 4, 1984). Same key and similar chord progressions (though tempos and melodies differ.

Ariana Grande's Be Alright (released March 18, 2016), from her third studio album, bears a close resemblance to Rather Be (released January 17, 2014) by Clean Bandit featuring Jess Glynne. In particular, Be Alright uses the same staccato rhythm for the keyborad part and emphasizes the minor sixth and four major seventh chords a la Rather Be's progression.
