    People Think One Direction's New Song Is Eerily Similar To Taylor Swift's “Style”

    Oh and it also has a not-so-subtle reference to her in the lyrics too.

    One Direction have released their new single, "Perfect", today and it's 🙌 🙌 🙌.

    However, people have noticed something – that the chorus of "Perfect" sounds very similar to the chorus of Taylor Swift's "Style".

    And people are losing their minds.

    tbh perfect sounds like style by taylor swift to me

    Am I the only one who thinks perfect sounds like style? #oops ☕️🐸

    Good morning can someone tell me why perfect sounds like style 2.0

    PERFECT SOUNDS LIKE STYLE BY TAYLOR BUT THAT'S NOT A BAD THING

    But this Twitter user, Emily, has gone one step further and has aligned the songs to play together to show just how similar they sound.

    Mind. Blown.

    Oh, and yes, that's Harry singing the chorus as well.

    And if you missed it, the song also contains this lyric: "And if you're looking for someone to write your breakup songs about, baby I'm perfect."

    There's also a reference to "midnight driving" - and "Style" opens with the line "Midnight, you come and pick me up no headlights/long drive/could end in burning flames or paradise."

    The song is going down well with fans though.
