CompositionEdit

Mangú has a Dominican sound to it with Gomez silencing 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 isn't.[1]

Live performancesEdit

Gomez first performed the song at the Latin American Music Awards of 2016. 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 27 million views on YouTube as of November 2017.[3]
