After becoming the first Somali-American Muslim elected to office in the United States in 2016, Minnesota Rep. Ilhan Omar (DFL-Minneapolis) is getting a bit of the rock-star treatment.

She can now be mentioned in the same breath with Jennifer Lopez, Ellen DeGeneres and Gal Gadot because they are all in the same music video, “Girl Like You” by Maroon 5 featuring Cardi B.

A dancing Omar appears briefly at about 3:45 minutes into the video clip (don’t blink or you’ll miss her) and again at the end, along with the entire cast, which includes Olympic gymnast Aly Raisman, comics Sarah Silverman and Tiffany Haddish and singers Mary J. Blige and Bishop Briggs. Omar posted the above photo on her Instagram account.

The video dropped Thursday morning. Watch it here:
