steve_grand_stay.jpgSinger Steve Grand catapulted to Internet stardom earlier this year when he released his debut music video, "All-American Boy." But the video was not universally praised: while some viewed it as a refreshingly honest portrayal of unrequited love, others saw an unhelpful reinforcement of anti-gay stereotypes. A bitter controversy ensued -- much of it right here on the Bilerico Project -- as Grand's supporters and detractors battled it out.

Now Grand is back with his second video, "Stay." Unlike in "All-American Boy," Grand gets the guy this time and they enjoy a summer of love and frolicking on the beach.

Watch it below and let us know your thoughts. Do you like Grand's sophomore offering better than his debut? (If you need a refresher on "All-American Boy," I've included that video after the jump.)
