    Dusk Till Dawn by Zayn = Invincible by Machine Gun Kelly (+ a bit of Army by Ellie Goulding),
    Crying in the Club by Camila Cabello = Genie in a Bottle by Christina Aguilera,
    Kelly Clarkson = Jimmy Eat World,
    James Arthur = The Script,
    Crybaby by Paloma Faith = The Boy Is Mine by Brandy & Monica


    2) Songs with the Taylor Swift echoy background "hey!" such as Little Mix, Dua Lipa, Carly Rae Jepsen

    Black Magic by Little Mix, Blow Your Mind by Dua Lipa, When I Needed You by Carly Rae Jepsen off the top of my head. Don't know which Taylor Swift songs specifically, Bad Blood's probably one.
