"Shut Up & Kiss Me" (also referred to as Shut Up and Kiss Me) is a song recorded by Australian guitarist and rock singer Orianthi for Believe (II), the 2010 re-issue of her second studio album, Believe (2009).

It was released to digital retailers through Geffen Records as the second single from the album on April 6, 2010.

Orianthi co-wrote the song with Steve Diamond and Andrew Frampton, the songwriters responsible for her debut single and Top 20 hit "According to You"; the song was produced by Howard Benson.

The song features a pop rock arrangement and prominent rock-style guitar riffs, particularly during the intro and the bridge.

"Shut Up and Kiss Me" is one of the most pop-oriented tracks on Believe, which in general tends towards pop-rock over the hard rock of her first album, Violet Journey (2007).

In an 2013 interview, Orianthi revealed that "Shut Up & Kiss Me" was "too poppy" for her tastes and that she would have preferred her Desmond Child-co-write "Bad News" as the second single.

Though failing to replicate the success of its predecessor, "Shut Up & Kiss Me" still attained a modest peak of 38 on Billboard?s Adult Pop single chart, in addition to charting in both Australia and Japan. The song garnered praise for its radio-friendly sound and infusion of pop and rock elements, drawing comparisons to the music of Kelly Clarkson.

The music video was directed by Ray Kay.
