American pop-rock band, Maroon 5, brought together a group of top-notch female stars for the music video of their song "Girls Like You" - and two hijab-wearing Muslim women made the cut.

Released on May 30, the music video features a diverse mix of celebrities, activists, and athletes, including Ellen DeGeneres, Jennifer Lopez, and Ashley Graham.

Among the women in the video is MuslimGirl founder Amani Al-Khatahtbeh, along with Ilhan Omar, the first elected Somali-American lawmaker.

In the music video, lead singer Adam Levine can be seen performing the song on a rotating platform, while the talented and powerful women stand behind or next to him - one at a time - singing and dancing along to the song. 

American rapper Cardi B then appears for a solo performance, after which the video ends with Levine embracing his wife and daughter.

Amani Al-Khatahtbeh makes an appearance, and so does Gal Gadot

The Jordanian-Palestinian journalist, women's rights activist, and founder of MuslimGirl took to social media to thank Levine for inviting her to take part in the video.

"When I was a little girl, I NEVER imagined seeing a woman that looked like me in a music vid, let alone that it would be ME one day! [sic]" she wrote.

While her appearance in the music video was applauded by many social media users, others were surprised she agreed to share the stage with Israeli actress, Gal Gadot, who was also featured in it.

This comes as Al-Khatahtbeh made headlines earlier this year after she rejected an award from multinational cosmetics brand, Revlon, because Gadot was the brand ambassador of its makeup collection.

"We can't accept role models that support the oppression of women and girls in other parts of the world," she said at the time.

"Her [Gal Gadot] vocal support of the Israeli Defense Forces' actions in Palestine goes against's morals and values. I can't, in good conscience, accept this award from the brand and celebrate Gal's ambassadorship after the IDF imprisoned a 16-year-old girl named Ahed Tamimi last month, an activist who is currently still incarcerated," she added.

Gadot, a former Israeli soldier, publicly supported Israel's bombing of Gaza in 2014, which left more than 1,400 Palestinian civilians dead – including hundreds of women and children. 

Responding to the negative feedback she has received, Al-Khatahtbeh reiterated that she had turned down Revlon's award because of its brand ambassador.

She added that the case was different in the Maroon 5 music video, as she and Gadot both "received the same invitation."

She went on to say, "I think it was absolutely incredible and groundbreaking of Maroon 5 to empower my voice on their platform and to be part of something bigger."

Ilhan Omar also joined the party

The lawmaker expressed her excitement about the music video, writing, "What if Adam Levine invited you to be in the new @maroon5 video featuring Ellen, J-lo and Cardi B and some phenomenal women? You have no choice but to say yes!" 

As the first Somali-American Muslim to become a legislator, Omar has inspired many with her fight for minority representation.

In recognition of her work, she was featured on the cover of TIME magazine last September as one of 45 women who have shattered barriers in an effort to change the world. 

Here's how the Twitterverse responded to the video:

Many were pleasantly surprised to see the Muslim duo

"I squealed a little when I saw the hijabi ladies"

"Thank you Maroon 5"

Yet another reason to admire Omar

Representation matters

Gal Gadot ruined it for many viewers

Some couldn't help but criticize Al-Khatahtbeh
