Additional notes/observations: 

The verse vocal melody to Lil Wayne and Charlie Puth's Nothing but Trouble (released June 29, 2015) is similar to the verse vocal melody to DeBarge's All This Love (released January 7, 1983). While in different keys (NbT: E; ATL C#), both melodies share the same relative contour, and are sung in the same falsetto vocal style. Thematically and lyrically, the songs are also similar (NbT: "For all of these problems" VS ATL: "I had some problems"). Interestingly, El DeBarge wrote All This Love "in hopes then-label mate and longtime idol Marvin Gaye would record it" [source: Wikipedia]. Puth is also a huge Marvin Gaye fan, as evidenced by his song of the same name.
