    PRWeb.com – 2016 Grammy Amplifier® winner Adley Stump and Miss USA Olivia Jordan star in the sassy new music video for “Don’t Wanna Love Him.” Miss Jordan and Stump are best friends in real life, and their playful camaraderie helps turn the clip into a fun and wild ride.
    In the storyline, Stump plays an ex-girlfriend, hoping to warn her former flame’s current love (Jordan) about his lying ways. The singer turns up at every opportunity: as a waitress, a busker, a clown. …Come to think of it, that gray haired lady in the blue shirt looks familiar, too. Adley had fun playing the various roles, and adds plenty of quirky energy to the video.
