Songfacts®:

  • This track was produced by Swedish House Mafia who are a group of house DJs and producers, comprising Axwell, Steve Angello and Sebastian Ingrosso. Usher told Reuters: "Songs like 'Euphoria' I feel really push the envelope. Swedish House Mafia hadn't really done a lot of songs with vocal artists. I felt privileged to be able to work with them."
  • Usher also worked with SWM on another Looking 4 Myself track, "Numb." Angello revealed to MTV News how their two collaborations came to be. "We did the [2010 American Music Awards performance] with Usher," he said. "And then he came to hang out with us in Ibiza. [After that] we were in Atlanta and we were all working together for five days. And then we brainstormed and wrote the records from start to finish."
