Shut Up and Dance: Mixes is a Paula Abdul remix album, released in 1990. It contains dance remixes of the six hit singles from Abdul's debut album Forever Your Girl, one remixed album track and one medley. The album was another huge success for Abdul, peaking at #7 on the Billboard 200.

Following Abdul's continued UK singles success throughout 1990, Shut Up and Dance was re-released there late in the same year, featuring an additional four tracks.

There were two singles and accompanying music videos released from the project—the "1990 Medley Mix"[5] and "Straight Up (Ultimix mix)".[6]
