This Parody Of Beyoncé’s 'Hold Up' Is All About Hermione Granger

A Potterhead and card-carrying Beyhive member just created the perfect "Lemonade" parody -- starring Hermione Granger.

YouTuber Dominique Taylor wrote the Harry Potter parody of Beyoncé's song "Hold Up," appropriately titled "Wand Up!" Taylor sings the song from the perspective of Granger when she was in love with Ron Weasley during the characters' fifth and sixth years at Hogwarts. 

“How did it come down to this? Thought our love was magic. I don’t wanna lose my pride but I’ma crucio a witch," Taylor sings into the camera. 

Instead of Yoncé's original "Hold Up" chorus where she sings: "Hold up, they don't love you like I love you. Oh, down, they don't love you like I love you," Taylor sings: "Wand up! I don’t wanna have to hex you. But Ron, they don’t love you like I love you." 

Taylor told Bustle that she's been a passionate Potterhead since 6th grade. 

"I really love literature and music, and so this is simply where my passions collide," she said. "A lot of my creativity is in trying to bridge the gap between the two worlds and recently, I’ve just been flooded with these literary parodies... and it’s also a great way for me to keep practicing the guitar." 

Way to slay, Dominique.

Watch the full parody below.
