Mangú has a Dominican sound to it as Gomez silences the "s" and lyrically speaks of the singer being wanted by a man that thinks she is a "crazy" American girl, but Gomez says she's not "one of those".[1]

Live performancesEdit

Gomez premiered the at-the-time track at Splash Kingdom. She performed the song at the Latin American Music Awards of 2016 on October 6, hours before its release. She later sang "Mangú" at La Banda 2016 along with "Sola".[2]

Music videoEdit

The music video for the song was also released on October 7. Its premise is a continuation of the story in the video for "Sola". The video sees Gomez and her friend stopping at a market store and invite the clerk to go with them. They are seen driving and dancing in the red car. A fourth girl appears in the car with them after going into a house to get clothes. The girls are seen entering a bar and dancing on top of a side table. The clip ends with the girls going to sleep in the car at dawn. The music video has over 52 million views on YouTube as of January 2019.[3]
