Will.i.am really took his mentoring duties to heart during his recent stint on The Voice Australia. He not only signed the winner to his label but also features on her debut single! So who is this lucky diva? Anja Nissen is a big-lunged 18-year-old from the Blue Mountains, who grew up listening to and singing country music. So, naturally her first release is a thumping club banger with a rap feature.

Produced by the prolific Black Eyed Peas hitmaker, “I’m So Excited” (sadly not a Pointer Sisters cover) is a promising debut in that it sounds current and radio-friendly. The chorus is undeniably catchy and the addition of “Birthday” vocalist Cody Wise should be a selling point internationally. The song doesn’t reveal much about Anja as an artist but there’s plenty of time for that. Listen after the jump.

Does Anja have a hit on her hands? Let us know in the comments below.
