Australian rapper Iggy Azalea's song Trouble (released February 24th, 2015), which features Jennifer Hudson, is reminiscent of several throwback soul/R&B songs. The gospel-tinged piano riff features the same rhythm as the Staple Singers I'll Take You There (released 1972), and Trouble has a similar chord progression (albeit in a different key) to Jean Knight's Mr. Big Stuff (released May 1971). Likewise, the opening jangly guitar riff/arrangement is similar to the Jackson 5's I Want You Back (released October 7, 1969). Hudson's chorus vocal melody is also similar to the chorus vocal melody to the Black Crowe's Jealous Again (released 1989).

The chorus vocal melody to FourFiveSeconds (released January 24, 2015) by Rihanna, Kanye West, and Sir Paul McCartney is very similar to the chorus vocal melody to the Jonas Brothers' single Burnin' Up (released June 19, 2008). Both songs are in the key of D major, and both melodies have a rhythm featuring two quarter notes followed by five eighth notes (one-two three-and-four-and *rest* and). Compare the chorus lines: "Four Five Seconds from wildin' | And we got three more days 'til Friday," with "slipping into the lava | And I'm tryin' to keep from going under."
