He's clearly over the moon!

Just when we thought Trevor Noah had reached the pinnacle of celebrity status -- he just keeps climbing higher!

The presenter of The Daily Show features in Jay Z's 4:44 album documentary about black men sharing their experiences of racism in the States -- and he couldn't be prouder.

He shared his exciting news with The Drive With Mo Flava & Masechaba Ndlovu on Metro FM and said the whole experience was surreal for him.

"It was one of those things that came out of nowhere. I just got a phone call and it's someone saying, 'Hey listen Jay Z wants you to...' (and you just say) Yes!" the South African comedian revealed.

Trevor joins megastars such as Chris Rock and Will Smith on the documentary, Footnotes: The Story Of OJ.

"Imagine you go from a world where you were just listening to Jay Z and then Jay Z asks you to be on his album... like Jay Z is saying to you, can you be part of this story that I am trying to tell on this album.

"So I jumped on it of course, then on top of that I watched the video and there's Will Smith, Chris Rock. I can't even believe I am in the same picture as these people, I don't take it for granted," said Trevor.

The full documentary is now available on Tidal.
