Nathan Sykes accused of "copying" R Kelly theme - can you hear the similarity?

Nathan Sykes has been accused by X Factor viewers of copying a classic R Kelly tune with his new single, Famous.

The former The Wanted singer's new single has had airplay on Capital (the company who own his Management company) for weeks now, but the song has only just hit the mainstream following his live performance on last night's X Factor results show.

Whilst the performance has helped give Famous a much needed boost in the charts, The Sun reports eagle-eared fans took to twitter to complain the singer-songwriter's track had more than a touch of similarity to R Kelly's classic track, Turn Back The Hands of Time.,

You can listen to the two tracks below. Can you hear the similarity?
