Mango Showers

by Mali

Mango Showers or pre-monsoon rains are like warning signs. The song is about having a strong premonition that something bad is about to happen, and then something actually does.

Album Notes
A few years ago, I was approached by a powerful, wealthy man who wanted to make me a star. Let’s call him S for the purpose of this story. While this sounded like something out of a Hollywood-dream-come-true scouting fantasy, I approached his offer with caution. He drew up a contract and made several tall promises, even offering me a few blank cheques in an effort to coerce me into signing his contract. I had a terrible gut feeling about what S had in store for me or anyone else who chose to sign on the dotted line, and after two weeks of being pursued by him, I finally turned him down. I had a strong premonition about this man being bad news. I then wrote Mango Showers about just that. About the fact that I could see this guy doing damage to someone’s life and career if they ever chose to work with him. Writing 'Mango Showers', true to its name, was just the warning sign of what was yet to come. Mango Showers, for those who aren't familiar with the term, is pre-monsoon tropical rain which acts as a forewarning that the real monsoon is about to begin.

Cut to a whole year later, I came to know that a good friend of mine had gone ahead and signed onto S’s label and had begun working and making content with and for him. Lets refer to my friend as J. It crossed my mind that I needed to have a word with J and warn him that this man didn’t have the best intentions for us independent artists, but before I could do that, it was too late. J had gone on to commit suicide, or what we were all led to believe was suicide, jumping from S’s apartment, leaving behind more questions that answers. Before we knew it, the case was closed and no substantial evidence was brought to the fore. Nobody knows what transpired in the minutes leading up to J’s death, but most everyone who had been acquainted with S knew there was more to the story than we were told.

This sort of thing happens in every industry, every walk of life. The familiar story of entering a commitment that has proven to be toxic and finding yourself ensnared in a one-sided deal. I wanted Mango Showers to be that warning sign to all those you who’ve found or will find themselves in that position. Trust your gut, and think long and hard about what you’re getting yourself into.
