quite sure i learned to say "le meilleur X du monde".  but on the internet, i'm hearing "au monde" and never "du monde."  i'm wondering if "du monde" is actually correct and better, but that the latter has simply taken over.

by coincidence, i was just following a podcast of a french prof and he used "du" which reinforces my belief that "du" is correct.  

They are both correct but  there is clearly a slightly different meaning.

There is rarely such a thing as a "correct" translation.It is all about context and  usage.

Maybe this will be of some help.
