In a whole, the song did sound similar, for example how the chorus and verse is being set up... but I won't call it plagiarism

i don't think it's plagarism... maybe i'll see it more if the vocals are less sharp and screechy

I think its the bass of the song that gets people in the background as well as certain dance moves.

Yeah I'm not seeing the plagiarizing. To be honest the commercial song is actually painful to listen to. I don't know if it's cos the voices are so sharp and just don't sound nice to me or because of the headache inducing music.
