After entering the national spotlight upon becoming the first Somali-American Muslim to be elected in the U.S. in 2016, Rep. Ilhan Omar's presence on the national stage continues to grow.

The state lawmaker made headlines last year after being a guest on "The Daily Show with Trevor Noah."

Now she is among the women to appear in the star-studded music video for Maroon 5's new single "Girl Like You," featuring Cardi B.

You can see her briefly at 3:47 in the video, which was released on Wednesday and features a huge array of America's most famous women including gymnastics star Aly Raisman, singer Jennifer Lopez, comedians Sarah Silverman and Tiffany Haddish, and "Wonder Woman" Gal Gadot.

The Minneapolis politician has been sharing pictures taken behind the scenes this week, posting a video message with Levine and pictures with co-star Ellen DeGeneres.
