Additional notes/observations: 

Canadian rapper Drake's song Hotline Bling (released July 31, 2015) is reminiscent of the Weeknd's The Hills (released May 27, 2015). While keys are a half-step apart (HB: F; TH: Eb), similarities include vocal melodies with the same rhythmic scansion (compare the rhythm of HB's verse melody to TH's chorus melody), lyrics (HB: "You used to call me on my cell phone" VS TH: "I only call you when it's half-past five"), and drum track (especially the hi-hat patterns). [Thanks to AJ Halliwell for suggesting this one!]
