Tempo is the speed (measured in beats per minute) of a record single or instrumental. And generally speaking, the higher the tempo the faster a vocalist should sing or rap because the song will sound terrible if an artist doesn't have any sense of rhythm or timing. But that can be somewhat fixed using comprehensive music editing software or professional audio add-ons e.g., Celemony Melodyne.

The same can be said about the speed of playing instruments e.g., for guitarists, drummers, percussionists, and keyboardists. Every musician has to groove nicely and remain in sync with the beat; however, in music production, there is also something called syncopation where you can deliberately play or sing slightly off-beat so that your song sounds cool and not too generic or mechanical when everything is aligned on the grid. In addition dancers too, I mean those without too left feet are guided by the timing of the music as well.
