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).

The chorus to Adele's single Send My Love (To Your New Lover) is oddly reminiscent of the chorus to Lorde's Royals, while Send My Love's verse chord progression/guitar riff echoes Cold War Kids' Hang Me Up To Dry.

Additional notes/observations: 

The verse vocal melody to Charlie Puth's One Call Away (released August 20, 2015) is very similar to the verse vocal melody to the Black Eyed Peas' Just Can't Get Enough (released February 18, 2011). While in different keys a whole step apart (OCA: Db major; JCGE: Eb major), both melodies have a similar contour. One Call Away's chorus vocal melody is reminiscent of the vocal melody to A Heart Full of Love (4:28) (from the musical Les Miserables). Others have compared OCA's chorus chord progression to Michael Jackson's Hold My Hand featuring Akon (:17), and it's vaguely reminiscent of English baroque composer Jeremiah Clarke's classical work Trumpet Voluntary (a.k.a. Prince of Denmark's March) composed circa 1700.

Additional notes/observations: 

The chorus vocal melody, chord progression, and lyrics to Demi Lovato's Cool for the Summer (released July 1, 2015) are very similar to the chorus vocal melody, chord progression, and lyrics to Jessie J's Domino (released August 29, 2011). Both songs were co-written by Swedish-born hit-maker Max Martin. While in different keys (Cool for the Summer: Eb, Domino: G), both chorus vocal melodies share a similar pattern/contour: repeating the initial note three times (on the downbeat of two, upbeat of three, and upbeat of four) and ascending for the final note of the phrase. Relative to their keys, the chorus chord progressions are nearly identical (Cool for the Summer: IVM7-ii-vi-vi-V, Domino: IVM7-ii-vi-V7sus4). The choruses are lyrically similar as well, Cool for the Summer: "Take me down into your paradise," and Domino: "Take me down like I'm a domino."

Additional notes/observations: 

The chorus to Sia's Elastic Heart featuring the Weeknd and Diplo (released October 1, 2013) has the same chord progression as the chorus to Little Boots' Remedy (released June 15, 2009). Both songs are in the key of A major and share close tempos (Elastic Heart: 130 bpm, Remedy: 129 bpm), and a common IV-I-V-vi (or 4-1-5-minor 6) progression, though their melodies differ.

Elastic Heart (1:01) VS Remedy (:29)

Honorable mention:

The chorus chord progression to Elastic Heart is also slightly reminiscent of the chorus to Big Time Rush's Nothing Even Matters, though NEM follows a IV-I-V-ii (or 4-1-5-minor 2) in the key of E major.
